Project Manuelito in Honduras


Project Manuelito is a ministry to children who have lived in and on the streets of Honduras. Having been homeless as a child himself, Pastor Jorge Pinto led his church in a project to help get kids off the streets. Project Manuelito focuses on housing and caring for both girls and boys who have been abandoned by their parents and have been exposed to abuse, illness, drugs, and violence.

Project Manuelito’s vision is:

  • To see Honduras without children living on the streets or being mistreated.
  • To rescue those who are currently living on the streets.
  • To integrate these children as “new” people with the goal of helping them become productive citizens of Honduras.

Partner with Project Manuelito.GIVE: The outreach of Project Manuelito has evolved to include prevention ministries. There are more than 40 children living at the project and more than 80 kids from town who go to school at Manuelito and receive lunch and emergency care. Partner with Project Manuelito today.

Project Manuelito: General Fund (21500)
Help care for kids who have been rescued from the streets of Honduras.

Manuelito Town: Kids’ Lunch (21506)
The town meal program provides lunch for more than 80 children who live in town but go to school at Manuelito. These kids would otherwise not attend school and would be out on the streets. The program’s goal is to expand to offer breakfast and meals during school vacations.

Manuelito Town: Kids’ Emergency Fund (21507)
The town emergency fund provides care for the more than 80 town children. Often, when these children get sick, their parents can’t or won’t take them to the doctor. The Manuelito staff steps in to take the children to the doctor and to pay the expenses. Help the staff better care for the kids when a crisis occurs.
