Honduras, the second largest country in Central America, is known for its beautiful national parks and its drinks such as Honduran coffee. Though Honduras has quite a high rate of poverty, it is still a beautiful country with a variety of exotic wildlife, and is a place with a variety of staple dishes.
Though Honduras is rich with culture and has a beautiful view of nature, the country still has a very high rate of poverty and nearly half of the people do not know how to read or write. As COVID-19 becomes more and more prominent, this rate of poverty is ever-increasing. People are losing their jobs and children cannot go to school.
The Learning Center is located in a rural town in the Honduras mountains. Like many areas, COVID-19 hit Honduras hard economically, and many schools have been officially shut down for most of 6 months. Strive2Thrive Edu has partnered with The Learning Center to provide elementary level students with the English and Science curriculum they are missing from their schools. Many schools now have a shortage of teachers and funding to their schools due to COVID-19. This is why Strive2Thrive Edu is working to provide quality tutors to fill the role of these teachers to allow the students to continue their path to success.
