Tegucigalpa Market Children: Ron Ross - President of Help Honduras Society, Ron outlined the basics of the Honduras Market Children project. While school is free for these children, attendance at school requires them to have a school uniform, and school supplies. This is where Help Honduras comes in. From online sources it is stated that "Today, the program serves approximately 2,000 children, the poorest of the poor in Tegucigalpa, and gives them the tools to make a better life for themselves and their families.  Of the 2,000 children currently enrolled in the program, approximately 1,000 are sponsored by Rotary.  The rest are sponsored by CRCID (Canadian Government and Rotary working together), or private individual sponsors.  There are approximately 350 unsponsored children in the program this year, and we need your help." It costs $100 Canadian per year to sponsor a child in elementary school, $200 for Secondary School to grade 11, $250 for Grade 12 or vocational training, $300 for university.
