The Importance of Clean Water

The Importance of Clean Water

In 2016 Connect Global partnered with the Community Water District in El Tamarindo to support a plan to give water to the residents of this remote and very water insecure town. In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the third phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. In August 2019 we plan to complete another clean water project in this area. Thank You for your support. 


Access to Water around the world is a problem

More than 600 million people still lack ready access to improved sources of drinking water.

Connect Global shares the message of Jesus through collaborative and sustainable solutions to needs around the world. One of the ways we complete this is through clean water projects. We decided to partner with the community run, Water Management District, in Valle, Honduras to come up with a sustainable solution for not only the well but a supply chain to provide water directly to each resident in a sustainable way.

Connect Global has chosen to be a part of the solution

We also hosted a team in Altos De Estiquirin in August 2018 to do work on an existing well and make connections so that each of their residents will have access to clean water. 

Our Next Water Project will be in San Lorenzo in late summer of 2019. You can come with us and help bring clean water to a community in Need!

How You can Help provide clean water to this town in Honduras

We are raising $5000 to complete this project and we need your help. Whether you can give $5 or $50 every penny counts. You can literally save lives by helping us. Clean Water can equal improvements in education, income and overall health.

In addition to clean water, our team has been able to help a local school get a kick-start to the new school year, and we also poured several new Concrete floors which will help several families by keeping the elements out of their homes.

Connect Global partnership with the Firefighters of Honduras

Connect Global partnership with the Firefighters of Honduras

In 2015, Connect Global launched an initiative in Honduras we call Connected Community. As a part of our ongoing support and investment into the Community of La Ceiba, Honduras our teams have provided several rounds of gear donations, a 2-day training for members of the local police department, and we have also engaged with the Fire Departments of La Ceiba, and El Porvenir to provide fire suits and other job related support.

Connect Global Visit to the Elders Home in El Porvenir

Connect Global Visit to the Elders Home in El Porvenir

Connect Global mission team visit to El Porvenir

There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to impact communities in Honduras. We often will find smaller sub communities to work with and one of those communities is the Elders Home in El Porvenir. Last year we visited and delivered prescription glasses as well as other items that were requested to help them create handmade gifts and crafts which they then sell to supplement their income.

This home provides a safe a secure place for some of El Porvenir’s most vulnerable citizens to engage with others, make crafts, and be fed. Our relationship with the Director, Olivia, has been able to help us know what is needed and what will be a blessing to the men and women who benefit from this home. It is our desire to help in any way possible and to help find sustainable ways to supplement the work Olivia is doing.

In addition to prescription glasses and knitting materials we have also provided a fully functional aquaponic food system. This is a blessing to the home’s already functioning chicken coops and in ground gardens. Aquaponics is a way for the home to provide some extra proteins and leafy veggies to an already vulnerable group of people and help ensure a nutritious diet.

Improving someone’s quality of life is easier to achieve than you may think.

We are grateful for you and for all the supporters we have been so fortunate to have been backed by over the years. We are always on the look out for more ways to support and help these communities and we will continue to share with you the success of those outreaches and how you can get plugged in.

If you are able to give a donation whether it is financial or something like glasses, small electronics, or medial supplies please click the donation button below or send us an email.

Thank You

Prison Ministry in Tegucigalpa

Prison Ministry in Tegucigalpa

There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to help raise up communities in Honduras. One way we have done this is by partnering with local church leaders who have a heart and passion for prison ministry. We have visited about 9 prisons over the past few years in various cities around the country.

Dr. Johnny Moffitt

Dr. Johnny Moffitt

Dr. Johnny Moffitt will be a part of Connect Global's Trip this February to Tegucigalpa to visit prisons and train leaders for prison ministry.

Johnny Moffitt has been invited to prisons around the world to teach officials, correctional staff, diplomats, and volunteers how to effectively minister to inmates as well as serve families affected by their incarcerated family members. The prisons of Honduras are in need of hope and the message of Jesus Christ. Our team will make a couple of prison visits as well as train prison leaders, and volunteers. 

We are grateful for Johnny's ministry and teaching and he and his wife, Betty Moffitt being able to share their time and expertise on this trip.

Dr. Johnny Moffitt

Johnny leads WVIW in ministry services to TDCJ prisons through Marriage Seminars for inmates, as well as for officers and staff; Manhood Seminars & Prison Crusades; and helped established a 12-step program called, “Overcomers”.  “Overcomers” is now in over 50 units of TDCJ, and three federal prisons.  In April of 1997, Johnny received the Governor George W. Bush Award for “Volunteer Services” to the Texas Department of Corrections, for his ministry to the marriages of Texas inmates and TDCJ officers and staff.  In 2006 he received the Governor Rick Perry Award as “The Best Family Program” in Texas prisons.  

In 2014 he was awarded the “Chaplain Ray Hoekstra Lifetime Achievement Award” by the International Coalition Of Prison Evangelists, for his thirty-seven years of ministry in prisons around the world.

Giving the Gift of Vision

Giving the Gift of Vision

Connect Global was able to give glasses to and improve vision for seniors in need.

There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to help and raise up the communities in Honduras. We have many large projects, but you may be surprised to find out that along the way we also find other ways to make a difference as well.

One of the ways we recently supported the communities in Honduras was by bringing new eye glasses to a senior home. These glasses were donated to Connect Global, and we knew that we had the perfect recipients. We have been visiting this special home over the past year and providing many different valuable gifts to this amazing group.

Back To School in Honduras

Back To School in Honduras

Connect Global has been sponsoring several students in Honduras since 2017.

One of the main ways we have been able to reach the communities and really make an impact is through the education of youngsters. We have been involved in supporting education in Honduras since Connect Global wa formed, and we have a very special group of partners and supporters in the US that have championed this cause for the last 2 school years.

We are looking to add more students to our roster of scholarship beneficiaries and we would love to invite you to join the several donors who are faithfully giving every month to ensure this group has everything they need to succeed this school year. 

A quality education, by loving staff, supported by compassionate sponsors.

The Staff at the two schools we are currently providing scholarships for are amazing. They take great pride in the work they accomplish and understand their purpose very well. We are grateful to a very supportive group of sponsors who take this privilege very seriously and make up the gap between students who want to go to school but may not have the financial means to buy school uniforms, books, or pay their tuition.


Connect Global sponsors some very hard working and committed students.

The Importance of a Concrete Floor

The Importance of a Concrete Floor

We believe in providing sustainable and tangible solutions to solvable problems that people face.

Dirt floors are very common in many parts of the world. In Honduras, many homes have very basic walls and a roof, but many of the homes are lacking a very basic, important element— a concrete floor. 

Why are concrete floors so important?

The Connect Global team works hard but we have fun too.

The Connect Global team works hard but we have fun too.

A 2007 World Bank study of a Mexican government program to replace dirt floors with cement found that doing so "significantly improves the health of young children."

Among the study's findings: "A complete substitution of dirt floors by cement floors in a house leads to a 78 percent reduction in parasitic infestations, a 49 percent reduction in diarrhea, an 81 percent reduction in anemia and a 36 to 96 percent improvement in cognitive development."

Beyond this, adults reported "increased satisfaction with ... their quality of life."

Our Connect Global team was able to pour 3 new floors for families in need as well as leave the funds to pour 2 more.  

The main focus of the Connect Global Honduras trip in August 2018 was to complete a water well project. We were also able to complete 3 NEW concrete floors while we were in town. Concrete floors are a huge need and they make an immediate impact. These floors improve the quality of life and may even save lives. These families have plenty to overcome and enough challenges to face that we believe a safe, sanitary floor should not be something they have to worry about. 

If you would like to help us sponsor more concrete floors in Honduras, we invite you to make a tax-deductible donation towards our upcoming trips and projects.

You can help a family in need get a clean, and safe new floor this year! 


Connect Global team members were able to bless several families with a freshly poured concrete floor.

Connect Global Visit to the School in El Tamarindo Honduras

Connect Global Loves to support local schools in Honduras.

We believe that education is one of the keys to unlocking the amazing potential that is in each of us. Connect Global partners with 2 schools in La Ceiba to facilitate several students education and supplies. Thank You to our sponsors for making this school year a possible.

The Kids were very happy to welcome our team.

Every child deserves to get a quality education. We sponsor education initiatives and provide resources when and where we can This past August the team was able to hand out free school supplies to help kick-start the new school year.  

No gift to a child is too small.

We all loved to be loved. Kids are not the exception they are the rule to this quote. Our team provided tangible gifts but were also able to give a hug, and a smile to let them know that We care and that God cares for them.

They are special and they are blessed to be a blessing and we are happy to have been able to share this truth with them.
