The Children’s Home Project in Honduras // April 2019

If there is one gift that carrying a camera has given to me – it’s the introduction to the community of The Children’s Home Project in Honduras. No matter how hard I try – my time spent there has broke open and changed my heart forever. I’ve met some of my best friends – the kind of people who are there for life – no matter what. I’ve heard and seen about so many hard things. Things that – pictures can’t do justice and words via the internet don’t quite convey. I’ve been inspired to see how much effect just being with someone can do. Not being there to change or to fix them – but being there with them in the hard. No matter what I do to try and verbally explain my time there – it will never do it justice. Even these photos might not – but I will be forever grateful for my camera. It allows me to process what I’m seeing and hopefully share it with all of you. The Children’s Home Project is not a non-profit who thinks they are the savior. They don’t step in to fix what’s wrong. They step in, provide support, and love when things get hard. If you want to learn more about them I recommend you check out their website here. Their words are so, so much better than my own. But here are the pictures – and hopefully they give you a glimpse into the good and the uncomfortable of these incredible humans.
