(May 2017) Jardines del Norte is a community of about 2,000 people in one of the poorer areas of Honduras. Six years ago, families in this community were desperately looking for help. Children were not attending school consistently. The community lacked access to proper sanitation and clean water. Community members had to carry water by hand for long distances. Many people obtained water from small springs that were unprotected and yielded contaminated water. During the dry season, they often didn’t have access to water at all. 

Children were malnourished. Parents in the community lived day by day, unsure what tomorrow would bring for their families. Access to education was minimal, and many children were illiterate. Families were searching for a chance to break out of poverty and create better opportunities for themselves and their children. 

Our love for the people in Jardines del Norte began in 2010 during an introductory visit. Through our partnership with Feed The Children, we e...

(August 30, 2016) After much anticipation, Foundation 4Life held a ribbon-cutting ceremony in Jardines del Norte, Honduras to celebrate the completion of a computer lab, the only one of its kind in the region. This milestone will provide a window to the technological world. The major Community Development project was completed as part of our partnership with Jardines del Norte. 

The donation included the construction of a brand-new classroom with an air conditioner and surveillance cameras, 30 computers, and a screen projector with a touch screen. All of the desks were built at the Foundation 4Life-sponsored Productive Carpentry School in Omoa, Honduras. Students, teenagers, and mothers will take computer classes to learn skills that will help them be more competitive in today’s world. 

Several 4Life distributors attended the event, including Platinum International Diamond Esdras Cabrera Alberto, Gold International Diamond Rigoberto Carrion, and several International Diamonds. Founda...

Since 2011 Foundation 4Life has supported the Productive Carpentry School in Omoa, Honduras. With the support of the community, and the local Mayor of Omoa, this Foundation 4Life sponsored school continues to provide valuable learning opportunities to many teenagers. The school offers a committed staff that provides onsite instruction, while giving students an opportunity to learn new vocational trades that can help them build a career early in life. As this school has expanded with new students and new programs, Foundation 4Life has provided additional support to expand the school by providing the equipment and materials for an all new welding program. 

In April 2013, this new welding class was officially launched, and will give students an opportunity to develop new skills and learn the trade of welding. The students’ first project will be to refurbish and repair desks for a local kindergarten classroom schools. 

Thanks to the opportunities provided at the school, many students are...

In January 2011, Foundation 4Life donated $18,750 USD to Feed The Children for a carpentry/vocational school sponsorship in the municipality of Omoa, Honduras. 4Life Senior Vice President of Marketing Trent Tenney and Foundation 4Life Director Tracie Kay joined Feed The Children representatives and local government leaders on February 5 to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the wood-working school that is ready to begin their first classes in early March.

There will be a mix of 20 boys and girls in the first program. The Foundation 4Life sponsorship provides wood materials , tools and equipment, and financial assistance for struggling families who otherwise wouldn’t be able to send their kids to school. The school hopes to offer micro credit loans to students upon course completion that will allow them to start their own small businesses. As the program succeeds, community leaders look forward to enlarging the facility and increasing the number of students who can enroll in these tr...

At the Foundation 4Life service project during BIG Convention 2010, 4Life distributors and executives assembled 2,000 school kits. Each kit contained a school bag, colored pencils, ruler, scissors, and other supplies. In February 2011, 4Life Senior Vice President of Marketing Trent Tenney and Foundation 4Life Director Tracie Kay traveled to La Ceiba and Tegucigalpita, Honduras on a three-day tour to present the backpacks and over 1,200 school uniforms to children at five schools. The school kits and uniforms lessen the financial burden that families feel, which often causes them to exclude their children from attending school because they can’t afford simple supplies. 

For nearly every child, the school kit they received is the first time they have ever owned something new, something of their own. The children thoroughly examined every item in the kit, running their fingers over the pencils and markers. They were proud to wear the backpacks home. Seeing the smiles on their face overwh...
