Grace United church since 2006 has been travelling each year to Honduras to support and encourage the children the people within that country. We work in partnership with a local organization called Friends of Honduran Children. The primary goal of our mission trips is to build structures that will be supportive and helpful the people in that area. Every November between 12 and 25 volunteers contribute their time, energy and resources to assist in the construction of our projects. Guided by the expertise of a local construction team over the last 10 years we have been able to construct:
● 3 homes for children in the orphanage known as Nuevo Paradiso;
● 2 prefab housing units,
● 5 one-room schools in the southwestern mountain regions of Honduras;
● 1 medical clinic
Over the last six years Grace Church is also provided much-needed school supplies for six role schools within the region of El Paradiso. Each year as we travel to these rural schools the teachers are incredibly grateful for the most basic school supplies such as paper, pencils, plastic rulers etc.
In November of this year  two brigades totaling 31 people will be travelling to Honduras. Our project this year is building a classroom where the school population is booming. We will also be painting the existing classrooms and replacing furniture in the kindergarten classroom.
Everyone will also have the opportunity to visit a rural school to deliver school & food supplies.A number of Grace Church members sponsor a child through Friends of Honduran Children (www.honduranchildren.com) .
