Located about an hour outside of Tegucigalpa, Nuevo Paraíso is a rural community of homes, schools, and activity centers for over 100 children. Originally a small community for single mothers and their children, it has transformed into a large community full of life and children. These children are abandoned or orphaned that now live in group homes with housemothers (Tias). Here, they receive schooling, computer training, skills training, healthcare, psychological counseling, and love and attention. These children are then able to grow up in a safe environment and prepare themselves to attend the university in Tegucigalpa or become a skilled worker in one of the many trades that are taught in the schools of Nuevo.
