What Flor Azul Does

Flor Azul Boys Community is a safe haven for impoverished, neglected, and abandoned boys. The farm mainly provides a place for the boys to learn, but also supports them with food, clothing, a place to stay, and vocational training in many different trades. Without the farm, many of the boys would end up in gangs and/or a cycle of violence and poverty.

Why Now

Our school, Gilmour Academy, has been going down to Honduras to help these kids for the past 13 years. Although mainly working in Nuevo Paraiso - a shelter for orphaned or neglected children of all ages - Flor Azul is a big part of that same community. One that has rescued, cared for, and educated over 35,000 kids in Honduras. We have visited Flor Azul many times and seen first-hand the great progress that is being made there.

However, this year the sponsor of Flor Azul withdrew and with only a couple more months until the funding from the sponsor ceases, the farm is at risk of having to be sold. We've made it our goal to raise the money needed to give the farm more time to find another sponsor. $35,000 will run the entire farm for half a year. With support from enough people, we can raise the money needed to continue helping these boys and prevent them, and possibly their children, from entering a life of poverty.
