El Salvador/Honduras

March 6 – 17, 2020 – After 3 years of absence from El Salvador with a team, La Mano of Hope is excited to be returning in 2020 in a two country project over 11 days. This team has the option of serving in 1 of 2, or in both parts. We will be in El Salvador from March 7 – 12 and Honduras from March 12 – 17. This is La MANO of HOPE’s fourth time to serve in El Salvador and third to serve in Honduras. In both countries, the partnership has been developed through community organizers and leaders that have made the invitation and collaborate with us on the ground. This sports outreach is in conjunction with a medical clinic as well. Daily clinics will be held with our medical providers, while our soccer coach will be organizing the soccer camps in the same community.

We work with local schools and community leaders to present the soccer camps. For the soccer outreaches we always are looking for partners to make donations such soccer balls, water bottles, prizes including socks, cleats, sports bags, etc.  All gifts are tax-deductible and will go directly to the sports camp as designated.

For those interested in information regarding single portions of the outreach, please contact admin@manohope.org.
