New Life Project
Teen pregnancy in Central America often brings an end to a young woman’s education. Cultural pressures, responsibilities with children, lack of commitment by fathers and many other difficulties prevent teen moms from continuing their education.
In 2016, Reach Out Honduras felt God’s leading to open a door for a solution for teen moms and pregnant teens. The New Life Project was founded and opened with a group of 25 teen moms in 7th, 8th and 9th grade.
Currently, we have 45 students in the New Life Project, including a few young fathers. Our moms and dads are able to bring their babies, if needed, to class with them. They study in an accelerated setting only a few hours each day. The New Life Project also offers sewing training and jewelry making as potential avenues for future small business.
These parents are brave and are setting an example for their children to continue reaching for their dreams, regardless of circumstances.
Thank you to each person who has specifically given financially to see the New Life Project continue.
