Update from Art For Humanity

Here is an update from Art For Humanity President, Glen Evans.
Meet Joseph, Hailey and Micah.

Joseph and Hailey and 14 month old son Micah arrived on campus in late March. They are the first family to serve with us. They live in one of the houses on campus built specifically to house a family volunteering long term. They and their friends raised the money to build it as part of their donation to AFH. They have been teaching and are now taking on more administrative responsibilities. To read more about them, click here.
Opportunity To Double The Good You Do
We have been blessed with a $20,000 matching grant. Each dollar donated for the building project during May will be matched dollar for dollar so as to double your donation. This opportunity allows you to do twice as much good. Please consider donating now. To read more, click here.
An Inside Look
For a student to be accepted at the new Leadership College, she needed to be recommended by someone like the Peace Corps which is involved in Honduras. Some of the students were recommended by Water Missions International which made and posted videos of some of the student families. The videos allow you to see their homes and families which are typical of all our students. To see the videos, click here.
If you are thinking of getting a new laptop computer, please consider donating your good used one. We have many, many students needing one. Perhaps you could inquire at work. When they upgrade, we’d love to have the old ones. We do not need any software so feel free to reformat the hard drive. If you don’t, we will.
Promoting Good Health
We took all of our students and workers to the dentist. This photo shows some of the students waiting in line.
Volunteer Opportunities in Honduras

We need many short term volunteers to come and volunteer at the college as tutors for a week or more. Please let us know if you or a group of your friends are interested in coming. Tutoring consists mainly of sharing conversation to help them learn English. To learn more about the college and tutoring situation, click here.
Honduran Embassy
The Honduran Embassy in Washington recently reached out to AFH thanking us for what we are doing in Honduras and offering their help. One of the helpful things they did was provide a document to make it easier for us to get donations through Honduran Customs.
Help Organic Farming 

There is much you could do helping to develop the farm that will eventually support the college. Whether helping with the coffee or bananna trees or with the chickens or on a building project, you will enjoy knowing that you made an important difference.
You Deserve A Break
Come to relax in the wilderness. To learn more about how to refresh yourself and recharge your life while supporting the college, click here.
Good Used Shoes Wanted
As always, we are asking you to help us find groups who will do a shoe collection. A pair of good used shoes allows someone to go out of poverty to self-sufficiency.

This photo is of some students of Kenmore Middle School and some of our volunteers who worked with them collecting over 400 pairs of shoes.
