The Story

Although Coral Springs Bilingual School in Villanueva, Honduras offers scholarship to 30% of its students, several of our current students have been unable to afford tuition this year, and will be unable to attend again next year without donations and sponsorship. Tuition fees are $60/month ($30 for siblings), and many families struggle to pay this in addition to transportation, books, and food for their children. Please donate whatever you can, as any amount truly helps here in Honduras. If you'd like to become an in-part or full sponsor, please email [email protected].100% of your donations will go directly to the student's tuition.

Walk Beside Me for Knowledge
(WBK) is an independent, Honduras based nonprofit organization that includes two bilingual schools focused on providing an affordable education without sacrificing quality. Public schools in Honduras are often overcrowded and underfunded, but many bilingual schools in Ho
nduras are for-profit, expensive, and don’t offer financial aid.  At Walk Beside Me for Knowledge, however, Coral Springs Bilingual School and Smart Kids Bilingual School are operated as volunteer run non-profitswith small class sizes, very low tuition costs, and  30% of students on scholarships. Children at the WBK Foundation schools receive an immersion based bilingual education in Hondurasfrom an international team of volunteer teachers and a group of devoted Honduran teachers and administrators. Students leave the WBK bilingual schools with a good command of the English language, which translates directly into access to higher education and better paying jobs in Honduras.


Our two schools:

Coral Springs Bilingual School

Smart Kids Bilingual School 

Our bilingual schools attract native English speaking teachers who commit to 1 school yearand a small living stipend in order to offer stability to our students and keep costs low. The English speaking volunteer teachers work alongside Honduran teachers and the founders of the program.

Sponsors play a crucial role in allowing the WBK Foundation to continue to offer scholarships. Please dontate or Sponsor a child at Coral Springs Bilingual School or Smart Kids Bilingual School through our youcaring page for Walk Beside Me for Knowledge.

Wow! I'm so thankful for and impressed by the generosity of my friends and family who have donated to help my students at Coral Springs Bilingual Schoolstay in school. There are few things that a person can give that is more valuable than an education. With your help we've reached our initial goal of $10,000!

One great thing about setting goals is that once they're reached, we can set the bar even higher! The Honduran school year ends in mid November, and the fundraiser will continue until then. There are still more families at our school that need our help, and if we raise enough, I can even use it to admit some new students to our school as well. Some of the parents here are forced to reconcile with choosing which of their children they want to send to school due to a lack of funds. With your help, more students can leave elementary school with a good command of the English language, which translates directly into access to higher education and better paying jobs in Honduras. Please donate and continue to share this link! Every share and any amount truly helps.
