Mission Statement


The Olancho Aid Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, faith-based organization that empowers Honduran youth to transform themselves, their communities and their country through education. From special needs to bilingual classrooms, our team of international volunteers and Hondurans are dedicated to breaking the cycle of poverty by providing an environment that stimulates intellectual and spiritual growth and fosters independent thinking.

Description


We are a Catholic education foundation located in Juticalpa, Honduras, in the department of Olancho. We oversee three schools: Escuelita Nazareth, a special needs school; Centro Escolar Santa Clara, a bilingual primary/middle school that includes grades pre-K - 7; and El Instituto Cardenal, a college preparatory high school for grades 7-12. Our goals and strategies include: (1) offering the only special education program in Olancho; (2) developing a well-rounded curriculum to educate students intellectually, spiritually and emotionally; (3) challenging students to engage the world through English language skills and interaction with foreign volunteers; (4) fundraising to provide scholarships and financial aid to students from economically poor backgrounds (90% of our students at Escuelita Nazareth come from families living at or below the poverty line); and (5) hosting mission trips we call Solidarity Projects for foreign groups who can offer talents and resources to those with the most needs in Olancho.
