Students Helping Honduras (SHH) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with a mission to end extreme poverty and violence in Honduras through education and youth empowerment. Specifically, SHH helps builds schools in Honduran towns and villages where they are sorely needed.
Honduran children often skip school because the closest one is miles away, and the roads between are not easy to travel and dangerous, leading to kidnappings, rapes or worse. When there are schools in a village, it usually takes place in a repurposed store or market, and basic needs such as bathrooms and meals are not provided.
100% of the funds raised for SHH goes to the materials and transportation costs to build a small 3-room school, complete with bathroom and small kitchen. The cost of the construction materials is just $25k, and with the labor provided by student volunteers and locals, raising enough money to build a complete school in one evening is very possible… but only with your help.
There is a SHH fundraiser in the Flatiron District on Thursday, April 16th @ 7pm to try and hit this $25k goal. Your $50 contribution at the door goes directly to SHH, and there will be light food and drinks provided, with the full menu of Slate to choose from as well. There will be a silent auction, prizes, games and more, so please come by and help us make a difference for hundreds of Honduran children desperately in need.
If you cannot make the event, or are not in NYC, please consider donating, even if it is just a little, to help us build a school with SHH.
