Isfeld supports Tegucigalpa

Mark R. Isfeld Secondary school's Interact Club supports the Tegucigalpa Market Children Program.

ATTENDING A FUNDRAISER May 16 run by the Isfeld Interact Club could help to buy desks for the Tegucigalpa Market Children's Program.

Mark R. Isfeld Secondary school’s Interact Club is proud to announce its sixth annual gala, featuring a silent auction and dinner.

This evening is in support of the Tegucigalpa Market Children Program, which evolved from a study of the problems of street kids and the working poor in Tegucigalpa.

Very few children were attending school as their parent(s) did not have the knowledge of the benefits of education or resources to send them to school. A scholarship program was developed to provide necessary items for children to attend school and for basic health care.

The cost of attending school in Tegucigalpa is $100 for a primary student and $220 for a secondary school student. Therefore, without this scholarship program, many children wouldn’t be able to attend school and instead have to be working all day in the market with their parents.

The Isfeld Interact Club is one of the biggest donors in the world to the Tegucigalpa Market Children Program, and has sponsored 250 students in past years. The funds raised through the upcoming gala will continue to increase the sponsorships and provide more children with the opportunity of education.

The sixth annual gala will be held May 16 at d’Esterre House. Doors open at 5:30, with dinner starting at 6. Tickets can be purchased at the Medicine Shoppe and Isfeld Secondary School office.

Adult tickets cost $25 and children under 12 cost $15. Come enjoy a night filled with local talent, delicious food, an auction full of great items, all while supporting a wonderful cause. There are a limited number of tickets available.
