Sponsorships for More Homecomings

Sponsorships for More Homecomings

By Christián Meléndez
January-March 2013

The primary vision of Escuela El Sembrador (The School of the Sower) has always been to sow the seeds of Jesus through the teaching of God’s Word with love and a genuine concern for the students. Students at El Sembrador receive an education and the vocational training they need to break the cycle of poverty for them and their families.

August 18, 2012, marked the 58th homecoming celebration for Escuela El Sembrador. Over 150 alumni were present, with men and women who were students 50, 30, and 10 years ago joining recent graduates.

At the closing of this celebration, the alumni and students were challenged to support other Hondurans in need and were encouraged to become sponsors for future generations. Sponsoring future generations is something you can take part in, too.

With the dropout rate growing in Honduras, many children are not receiving a proper education. Only 50 percent of Hondurans finish the fifth grade, and less than 6 percent will reach seventh grade. With many school-aged children being forced by economic hardships to stay home and provide for their families, those blessed with an education are vital to the future of Honduras.

Become a significant part in the future of these children through the El Sembrador Sponsorship Program. A gift of $125 a month for 12 months will provide a child with the education they need for one year. Donations can be made to account #23493-CALL and sent to:
