The Point of Hope in Honduras

Mar 11, 2022 | Home Page, News

Fourteen years ago, Dario Delarco saw a need in his hometown of Olanchito, Honduras. In the community where he grew up there were children at risk due to poverty and lack of education. As a pastor he saw an opportunity to meet physical and spiritual needs through a church and child development center. He owned a little property in the community and decided to use it to house two simple buildings.
The ministry began and has operated with almost no outside help for 14 years. When we visited the small facility the Lord immediately placed on our heart the need to assist in the completion of Dario’s vision. This location has the potential to make a huge impact in the surrounding community with just a little funding. Children need to learn job skills.
As we visited with Dario, we discovered that just a little support would provide enough help to make this ministry a consistent reality. The community and the center needed a water well. The center needed a paid teacher and helpers, and a cook. The organization mainly operated with volunteers who were only able to help occasionally, and the building had no running water, so the needed water for cooking and drinking is being transported in pots from a neighborhood school.
The Point Of Hope-Honduras now has a teacher and cook on staff, and a water well to provide clean water for drinking and cooking to the kids at the center. We have 20 kids currently in the program, but in this neighborhood alone a lot more can be done. If you would like to become a Voice Partner for these kids, click here.
