|JoyLand Raises $10k for New Playground for Casa De Luz|
|Children in Honduras are So Excited|
|Published Wednesday, March 30, 2016|
A couple years ago, our children from VBS raised $10,000 to help Casa de Luz build a playground for the children from the poorest barrios in Honduras. That playground has just been completed.
Casa De Luz exists to provide care and preschool education in the poorest barrios in Honduras. They execute this through strong relationships with the local church, and supporting missionaries on the ground to assist local Hondurans in solving their problems….teaching them to care for the local community through relationships, as opposed to providing care from the outside-in. Missionaries hire and train local community members to run the preschool, bringing economic development to the neighborhood. Participants pay what they can, making them a part of the process. A local board made up of local Honduran Leadership stewards the resources, which includes the local pastor and Institute for Community missionaries.
