International Partnership: Proyecto Alas, Talanga, Honduras
Missionaries: Steve and Lindsey Poulson
We have been sowing seeds of faith in Honduras since 2013, and we are currently supporting community development and mission work in the town of Talanga, Honduras at Proyecto Alas. The project is led by missionaries Steve and Lindsey Poulson, and their goal is work with the Honduran leaders of Talanga to empower young people and families.
Proyecto Alas’s ministry focus is to reach children and young people who live at high social risk, are in danger of becoming street children, or live on the street. Among other things, these youth are much more likely to suffer from depression, to attempt suicide and to become drug users.
The vision is to see transformed children and youth transform a nation. A key part of the ministry is the Transition Program, which aims to support those aged 18+ into a sustainable and positive adulthood. Proyecto Alas ministers to the most at-risk children and youth in Honduras by connecting them with well-trained, Christian mentors.
Vision: To see transformed children and young people transforming the world
Mission: To provide the most at risk, street-connected children and young people in Honduras with a Christian Mentor who is trained and equipped to help them realize their potential and live a life of abundance
