Global Girl Life Education Program - Roatan, Honduras

OVERVIEW
Coxen Hole, Roatan, Island, Honduras is a low-income tourist destination where the resident’s sole survival depends on foot-traffic to the port location during high season. The population is rising and as a developing country and community, there are many socio-economic issues of which are negatively affecting the literacy rate, addiction rate and survival rate of the local islanders. 


It is the intention of Global Girl LIfe and Global Girl LIfe Shop to partner with domestic partners in the US that can help transform the community to put them in a situation where they can survive independently from come and go ministries and in turn form a holistic ministry where we work to help them become self-supportive, help their children get an education and reduce the addiction rate. 
I have currently established friendships and partnerships in the local church, the artisan community, local school, and the only drug rehabilitation center on the island. We need your help to continue our mission to help them form processes that become sustainable and prosper even when tourism is not present. 


On the front line, the biggest way you can help is to contribute to the Global Girl Life Education Program where we raise funds and provide uniforms, school supplies and hope to as many students as we can each year. In Roatan, Without a uniform, the student is on the streets every day susceptible to drugs and survival challenges of the streets.
