Hi My name is Nancy Bell, and I am the founder of Mayor Potencial. We are a 100% volunteer-run, 501C3 non- profit organization. In order to attend public school in Honduras you must wear a school uniform. In the rural village of El Rodeito, where we are currently working to raise the funds to build a highschool, we have 13 children who need our help. Their families are unable to provide the school uniforms and school shoes needed. El Rodeito is a rural village where sustenance farming is a way of life. Sadly, an ongoing drought has devastated this community, and they need a little help to ensure their children can continue to attend school. In Honduras the school year is Feb-Nov. We need to act fast and ensure the children can continue their education!
The cost of the uniforms and a pair of school shoes per child is $30. 07 Transportation from El Rodeito to Tegucigalpa per person to purchase the uniforms is $35. The money gram fee is 9.99 per transaction The fees charged by paypal to accept donations here are: 2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction
Here is the breakdown of the uniform costs per child: Shirt $6.15 each Pants/Skirt $6.15 each Shoes $12.30 Sales tax: $1.97 Transportation $3.50 ( In order to save in transportation costs, we will have one community member travel and purchase all uniforms for the kids)
Meet the kids!!
