About Grace Honduras

Our vision at Grace Honduras is to create a brighter future for children living in extreme poverty and suffering from child labor in the trash dump of San Pedro Sula.
Grace Honduras is a non-profit organization founded by Katherine and Pastor Jeony after they accepted Jesus into their hearts and decided to dedicate their lives to helping those in need. The journey began when Katherine witnessed a young boy walking barefoot through piles of trash, which sparked a deep compassion within her and led her to volunteer for a mission trip.
Pastor Jeony had spent 30 years working with children living in the street and in trash dumps, starting several projects to provide integral assistance. In 2016, Katherine and Jeony attempted to start a project in the trash dump of San Pedro Sula, but encountered numerous difficulties and obstacles.
However, after meeting Eddy, a six-year-old boy walking barefoot in the dump, they were inspired to try again. With just $200 for food and volunteer teachers, they started classes with 25 students in a building with no doors or windows. Despite financial difficulties, they persevered and sold their cars to buy supplies and pay for teachers.
Today, Grace Honduras has 200 students, 1 high school student, 1 university student, 4 classrooms, two daily meals, school supplies, 8 teachers, microenterprises for mothers, a school orchard, legal assistance for birth certificates, and healthcare brigades. All of this is possible only through the grace of God. Eddy, Abigail, and their families are now part of the Grace Honduras community and thriving.
