Campos Blancos School
Private bilingual schools are not generally found in small farming villages, but VIDA recognized the need due to the political situation and lack of educational funding in Honduras. Public school teachers were regularly on strike, forcing children to miss classes for days or sometimes weeks at a time. Families hoping to provide better opportunities for their children constantly had the educational system working against them.
After studying the possibility of opening a bilingual school, the VIDA team was convinced of God’s calling to work in educational lines for children. This was confirmed when Swiss missionary with formal training and experience in education agreed to join the staff to open CBS in February of 2011. What began with two students its first school year has grown to more than 100 students from kindergarten to eleventh grade.
