HOI Schools Attracting More Students!
by: Laurie Willing
They will walk for an hour, ride their horses, share a bicycle, pay to ride a school bus or load up the back of a truck just to get to the HOI schools! Students in the Agalta Valley are coming from over 30 villages to attend our schools because they know that HOI provides a quality education and opportunities for the future.
The HOI Hope Middle School computer lab has 35 computers and internet access. The students attend English class, have access to a science lab and are presented with a Biblical message each week by Young Life leaders. The library contains hundreds of books including classic novels, reference books, world maps and instructional resources. Sewing, cooking and farming are taught to provide vocational skills for the future and interested youth can participate in band, Honduran dance or chorus. The new Vince Dooley Soccer field, complete with bleachers and a score board, is something every student is proud of.
In 2014, 33 ninth graders graduated from Hope M.S., with 100% applying to attend a local high school. This compares to 25% of public school graduates in the country. Parents and children in our area have come to value education and understand the difference it can make for their future.
Take this opportunity now to be a part of something BIG! Sponsor a student…..
Laurie is the Executive Director for HOI and enjoys spending time with her family and college football.
