Connect Global completed new Concrete Floors in Honduras

Connect Global completed new Concrete Floors in Honduras

The Connect Global Team was able to provide 3 new concrete floors for families in San Lorenzo, Honduras. 

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

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.

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 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.


Connect Global team members had the opportunity to show love in a very practical way at the school in El Tamarindo.

Connect Global Visit to DINAF in La Ceiba Honduras

Connect Global Visit to DINAF in La Ceiba Honduras

We have been visiting and renovating space next to DINAF one project at a time and supporting their efforts to create a safe, clean, and properly equipped school for the children. 

Dirección Nacional de la Niñez y la Familia (DINAF)  a community organization charged with the enforcement of the protection of children, adolescents, and families has a regional office and primary school here in La Ceiba. Our teams have been partnering with DINAf since January 2015, when The Mendoza Family moved to Honduras. We have seen many changes both in leadership and in the care the kids receive here. We have also seen the city make changes to the name and admin of this kindergarten. 

The Kids here are amazing to spend time with.

Each time we have a team in La Ceiba we will try to visit this school and bring some joy with us. This time we brightened up their cafeteria by painting and had fun playing, swinging, and blowing bubbles. 

A motivated and committed staff are keys to success

The Staff we met are all very motivated to make this the best location possible for the children and families they serve. On each visit, there have improvements. The Smiles on the kids are proof that their teachers and admin staff here are taking pride in the work they are accomplishing.

We also brought a microwave and several other components they have asked for to help the staff operate this school better. 

Their funding is low and inconsistent but they have done the very best with what they have. This makes us very happy to support their efforts here.
