Donors Like You Help Students like Kevin

Kevin is a teenager in a community in Honduras, where trafficking, drugs and dangerous conflicts endanger many youths. Young men his age are often pulled into dangerous lifestyles that end in tragedy.

But thanks to supporters like you, a Compassion Center was able to offer youth programming in Kevin’s community. Kevin attended a vocational school instead of becoming a victim of violence in his neighborhood. Eventually, he was able to achieve his dream of becoming a mechanic, with the goal of supporting his family in the future.

This young man was able to escape poverty and hopelessness and realize his God-given potential because of gifts like yours. Your donation will enable students like Kevin to make a positive impact as adults on their families, friends and surrounding communities!.
