Improving education in Honduras is a major priority for ChildFund. Classrooms in many communities have one teacher for several grades, making learning difficult for Honduran children. Our programs train teachers in communication and problem solving and promote adequate conditions for improving school performance. Recent initiatives include providing additional teaching materials, equipping schools with furniture and completing facility improvement projects. School directors also received training, helping them to better support their teachers. Tutoring programs and violence prevention projects add to the efforts to create friendly, safe, caring and inclusive learning environments.
ChildFund also supports inclusive education in Honduras for children with disabilities, through monitoring, maintaining records and implementing care plans.
