Manuelito - Honduras
Hope Teams International is working alongside Pastor Jorge Pinto in his ministry to transition street children to more stable living conditions. Raised as an abandoned child, he understands the needs of the kids who live on the streets. The program involves social training, detoxification, public education, and experience of the love of Christ through the staff of the Ranch and the congregation at Amor y Vida Church where Jorge Sr. is pastor.
The ranch at Talanga, is about one hour from Tegucigalpa. This is close enough to make transportation by car easy, but far enough to keep the bad influences of street life away from the kids.
The 50+ acre site at Talanga is under continual construction. Two dormitories, the dining hall, a computer lab, a Director's house and most recently, a Medical Clinic/Team Housing building.
One of the biggest recent accomplishments has been the addition of a new school on campus that meets the special needs of the children in the project as well as children from the community.
Hope Teams and several other groups are providing teams to assist with construction and educational needs as well as financial support through our child sponsorship program.
