When Morgan moved to Honduras in May 2011 it was the first time she had lived outside of the children’s home. Morgan rented a one room apartment on the central park downtown. Morgan began to see the kids hanging out in the park and collecting cans on the street. Morgan was approached to be a volunteer English teacher at a program for street kids. Morgan began teaching 4 classes a week and quickly began to put faces to the label “street kids” She realized the need for something more than teaching these kids English.
Morgan approached the mayor of the town about the idea of a feeding program where kids could receive both physical and spiritual food. The mayor liked the idea and ended up selling Morgan a piece of property for her home and donating a piece of property for the feeding program. In January 2012 the feeding program began in the Kasaubila neighborhood.
Today, almost 100 kids attend the bi-weekly program where they play soccer, swim, hear a bible story, memorize a scripture, and eat a meal of rice and beans. The goal for the future is to host the kasaubila feeding program more often. Also we are striving to make the feeding program more sustainable with the kids growing their own garden and having a chicken coop on the 2.5 acre property.
