CEVER is a life-changing place for Honduran youth. Young people go there and get empowered to improve their lives. They learn skills that will help them to get ahead in an imperfect world. They have good teachers who care about them and work hard to train them well. But CEVER is underfunded. Currently, there simply are not enough in-country resources to fully fund this institution. Three Mainers visited CEVER in August of 2008, and the Director of the school told us, “I honestly don’t know how we are still here. We operate by the grace of God.”

You can support CEVER financially by sending money through the Maine Conference. This support makes a huge difference in the lives of the young, motivated Honduran students. Our funding can pay for teachers’ salaries, help subsidize tuition for those students who cannot afford full tuition, purchase technical equipment and supplies, provide additional basic curriculum materials (reading, math, etc.), and/or furnish the school with computers.

There are also other ways to support these efforts – you can learn more about Honduras and the economic situation there, and you can pray for the leadership at the school and for the students themselves. Periodically, there may be mission trips that go to the Yoro area to do construction and/or medical work; for more information, please contact us.

We also hope to start a coffee project fundraiser in the near future – we plan to sell fairly traded, Maine-roasted Honduran coffee to raise money for CEVER.

Support the CEVER school – buy Honduras Partnership coffee!

Organic,Fair Trade,Maine Roasted…DELICIOUS coffee! …and for a great cause!

The Honduras Partnership Committee of the Maine Conference, United Church of Christ, is pleased to announce the latest way to support the youth of Honduras. 

When you purchase a 12oz bag of Honduras Partnership coffee, $2 will go to the CEVER vocational school in Yoro, Honduras.  CEVER is a transformational place, where Honduran youth are empowered to get some of the few well-paying jobs in Honduras. 

The coffee is from Fair Trade and Organic certified small farms in Honduras, so the growers benefit from your purchase, too, as they receive a fair price for their coffee.  Visit the website of our partner, Wicked Joe’s Coffee, to order your Honduras Partnership Coffee today! then click on the Special Project Coffees tab to order your Honduras Partnership Coffee
