The Mission of El Hogar is to provide a loving home and education in a Christian environment for abandoned, orphaned and hopelessly poor boys and girls, enabling them to fulfill their ultimate potential as productive human beings in Honduras.
We at St. John’s continue to support Jaison Jahir Perez Ordonez (known as Jahir). He is now a fifth grader at El Hogar’s The Home of Love and Hope and turned 12 in February, 2015. He is doing well and continues to enjoy the happy atmosphere at El Hogar.
El Hogar began in 1979 with five hungry, scared, abandoned little boys who were sleeping under cardboard in a doorway on the streets of Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Five Episcopal Missionaries in Tegucigalpa rented a home, went out in the middle of the night, and brought those five little boys home. They fed them, bathed them, and showed them love and compassion. El Hogar de Amor y Esperanza – The Home of Love and Hope – was born.
El Hogar now had 256 students and 75 staff members. In November 2012, the first six girls graduated from the elementary school (The Home of Love and Hope) and live on the new property that was purchased to allow girls to attend a private high school. Six young girls will be added to the elementary school (which is co-ed) in their place.
St. John’s now commits $1,800 each year to support Jaison Jahir. That amount will be sent to El Hogar in February each year. Your support for El Hogar is outstanding.
Please continue to support El Hogar (loose change on every second Sunday supports El Hogar, plus any dollars or checks that are marked for El Hogar) and keep Jaison Jahir and the El Hogar boys and girls in your prayers.
