Food For The Poor

When disaster strikes, we often think of the need for housing, food, clean water or other medical assistance in the immediate response efforts. But in order to truly serve the needs of an affected community or region, long-term planning and development is necessary.

FFTP helps women in Honduras become truck drivers

Photo/Special to Food For The Poor

Women in Honduras, struggling to provide for their families, are losing economic opportunities because they do not have the certification needed to obtain one of the many well-paying jobs driving trucks.

Many women who enrolled at the Puerto Cortes Transportation School have been forced to withdraw to work temporary jobs to make ends meet, instead of staying the course and obtaining a better job as a truck driver.

On International Women’s Day, which is March 8, generous Food For The Poor donors can be a blessing by providing 25 scholarships to these qualified women, so they can stay in school.

The scholarships include 482 hours of training. The women also will receive a monthly stipend of $125 during the four-month training period.
