For many years, Army of Hope International Founder Yadira Castro saw an increasing need to support students in Honduras and Central America. As time passed the situation worsened due to unemployment, parental abandonment, child labor, hunger, and crime.
Born and raised in Honduras, Yadira saw the immense suffering but also the promising potential of each child with whom she came into contact. She became a certified teacher in Honduras to learn of and explore the lack of resources within the broken system. In 2001, Yadira began her career in the mission field, fueling her desire to help improve the lives of children in Honduras and Central America.
19 years later, Army of Hope International was established as a 501(c)(3) organization to help provide students with the educational opportunities that they need and deserve. Currently, Army of Hope International has learning centers in Honduras, Nicaragua, and the United States.
