Donations in Action – Classroom blackboards, Honduras

One of the best ways to help a child in the developing world is to give them an education and provide the tools to help them learn. In the ‘Republica de Honduras’ school, classroom blackboards have made a real difference to the quality of education available for children.

Maura, the President of the Parents´ Association of the School, believes the blackboards are a great benefit to her students:

“Our school is poor and all six grades are located in the same classroom. We only had one board and the teachers could not write instructions or the homework for each grade, hence sometimes the other children had nothing to do. Now that we have three boards, each group of children has its own activities, which means that children are kept busy and do not have to wait for the other grades to finish their activities”.
