Upon seeing the dire need of the poor children of Honduras, the Sisters of Mary established a Girlstown in Tegucigalpa in 2012. In February of 2012, the Sisters took in the first 80 girls from some of the most impoverished areas in Honduras. Now the Sisters of Mary have the capacity to care for 780 young girls and give them food, clothing, shelter, as well as middle and high school education.

The girls have three nutritious meals a day, full healthcare and all the support they need to grow strong and thrive during their time at school. The girls are also encouraged to pursue hobbies and extracurricular activities such as sports.

The girls receive vocational training in dressmaking, culinary arts, English, and advanced computer courses. These subjects are relevant to local job opportunities and will help the girls learn what they need to find work when they finish school. Many girls also go on to achieve university scholarships upon leaving school.

These poor children come to the Sisters with nothing and with the kindness of generous donors, every child has all the food, clothes and educational supplies they need to succeed at school.
