Jazmin School – 70 Students
Constructed a 14’ x 9’ kitchen and patio at this very poor rural school. H2H-T purchased the appliances – sink, refrigerator and a heavy duty Honduran stove. The kitchen will provide the daily meal for the children. H2H-T purchased all cooking equipment – pots, pans, utensils, plate ware and cups. The H2H-T carpentry construction team constructed a kitchen work table, kitchen shelves, two large picnic tables and benches for the children.
Refurbished two existing bathrooms by installing new piping, valves, tanks, toilets, sinks, and faucets. Constructed, painted and installed new bathroom doors. Repaired and replaced 10 feet of pipe that drained into the existing septic tank.
Installed conduit and electrical cable from meter to building.
Installed water into the new school kitchen. Installed new valves and 150 feet of 1″ PVC piping from the main water line. The water line now enters the new kitchen and is connected to a new “Ultra Violet” water purification system (installed for use within the kitchen for cooking, as well as for washing of dishes, pots and pans). This purified water system also is connected to new sinks for student’s hand washing and new drinking water fountains.
Painted the classrooms that were built previously by H2H-T.
At Principal Julia’s request, H2H-T repeated one mural completed last year (pandas and butterflies) on a classroom wall, where it is used to teach colors and directions to the children. Julia chose an underwater reef scene for the outside with corals and fish in vivid colors. On another classroom, H2H-T creatively painted a mural of a parrot and a toucan on a palm tree.
Las Palmas School Classroom – 76 Students
Double Classroom Construction
This school was brought to our attention by the Tela Mayor. A shed was being used as a classroom in this very poor area. H2H-T constructed a large double classroom for the school. This project demanded heavy construction work – cement blocks, rebar, etc… The community members were always available and eager to assist the H2H-T volunteers.
The physical structure of the classroom and roof are in the final stages of completion. The installation of the “UV Water Purification System” to provide the school with clean drinking water will occur once all construction is completed.
Gravil Avelar School – 230 Students
Renovation Administration Building – Renovation
H2H-T completed a renovation of the small administration building for this overpopulated school – the building was basically falling down. The renovation included a new roof, new windows, doors, lights, and cement porch and complete painting of this building.
This exterior of the school, classrooms and window bars were painted by the H2H-T team. There was support by the community.
The “UV Water Purification System” is in process of being installed. H2H-T installed a 1700 liter water cistern along with a special water pump to provide the proper pressure for the entire school. The purified water will provide clean water for drinking and cleaning purposes.
Jubilados School – 320 Students
This school has contaminated city water, so H2H-T installed a new “UV Water Purification System” to provide the school with clean water. This included installing piping, fixtures, and two new sinks on the north wall of the Library for the students to wash their hands and/or to drink water. Once we can obtain some standard drinking fountains, they will also be installed near these new outside sinks.
