As a ministry, our mission is to break the cycle of poverty for the families that live and work in and around the Tegucigalpa garbage dump by meeting the holistic needs of our students and their families.



WE DO THIS IN FOUR STEPS...

step 1: establish contact

and build trust

The people in the dump are very hesitant

of outsiders. Our first task is to initiate contact

in order to break this barrier and create trust. 

This takes commitment and, at times, is not

a quick process.

Step 2: enrollment in AFE

Once trust is created, we encourage parents

to allow their children to enroll in our

school where they will receive

classes 5 days a week for 5 hours a day.

Step 3: meet holistic needs

At AFE, we work tirelessly to meet the holistic needs

of all our children. These needs include EDUCATIONAL, 

SPIRITUAL, PHYSICAL, EMOTIONAL, and FAMILY.

Step 4: rEENTRY INTO SOCIETY

Our final goal in the development of AFE students is

that they would have the economic, social, emotional, and

intellectual skills to succeed in society outside of the

garbage dump and become servant-leaders who glorify God.
