Education is a necessity that promotes human development and empowers the students to become productive members of Honduras society. With the virus pandemic, the children of SAN are not allowed to physically attend classes. In order to help our students, we need additional teachers at the SAN projects to assist with tutoring and the educational needs of the children. A teacher who inspires confidence, has values in mind as a professional, and who knows how to transmit what she knows with patience and enthusiasm.

With the arrival of the Covid-19, the Honduras Ministry of Education closed the schools and required classes to be online. With these new measures, additional computers and learning tools are necessary so that children can continue to "attend" school and work on their school assignments.
The children of SAN need additional computers and equipment to facilitate access to online classes.
