Ebenezer School was founded in 1998 by a former public school teacher whose faith and commitment to children with disabilities led her to start the shcool in a building that was formerly the family residence. Located in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the school serves over 104 children who have some form of disability which does not allow them to attend public schools.
Ebenezer provides both an educational as well as social and family-type nurturing environment. Many of these children have only fragmented families supporting them, while others survive on the streets. When funds are available, clothing and limited medical attention are provided.
Our Mission is to provide education and life skills to the impoverished, disabled children of San Pedro Sulas, Honduras; and to enable the school to continue its operations and outreach program.
There are several ways to contribute aid to Ebenezer School. You may become a Sponsor by sending one or more children to school for one year for the cost of $420.00 per child. If desired, this tuition can be paid in monthly installments of $35.00 or quarterly installments of $105. You will receive a picture of the child you have helped with his or her name and a brief background. We will also provide updates during the year on the student's progress at the school.

Every three years, a group of NUCC members and friends volunteer to bring school and care supplies to the students of Ebenezer School in Honduras. While the volunteers are on the school campus, they help care for needs, such as building maitenance, and they spend quality time playing and interacting with the children and staff. If you are interested in going on the next trip to see Ebenezer School, please contact the Church Office, (239) 261-5469, and you will be put you in touch with Judy Peterson, Chair of Ebenzer School Board.
The staff is doing phenomenal work for these underprivileged children with limited resources. We are excited and pleased at all the good work that has been accomplished through our joint venture, but there is still much more to do.
