Street Kids Direct sponsors a project called Proyecto Alas, based in Talanga, Honduras. The programme started last year to help reach vulnerable and street-connected children in Talanga, and recently has been loaned a house in the town in order to start a mentoring centre.
The centre "Casa Club" is currently going through some much-needed refurbishment as there was no running water, toilets or electrics. The children got involved from the moment the house was offered to the group and have made it their own and have worked hard at helping to make it a pleasant environment for them to do their homework, play and get the support they need from their mentors.
The Proyecto Alas is a new project, currently operating under the World Gospel Mission structure and has received funds from Global Care to help with the basic running costs.
We are very pleased to partner with them and you can find out more about their work via their Facebook page.
Thanks to the monthly support of Street Kids Direct sponsors we have been able to put 12 young children into full-time nursery school.
The children used to spend each day on the streets in the notorious "La Terminal" in Guatemala City and were at risk of kidnap, hunger, disease and exploitation.
No they are safe in a caring nursery and our street team follow up with regular visits to ensure their attendance and keep them off the streets.
Thanks to Fulmer Infant School in the U.K. for their visit too the Radio Christmas studios in 2018.
We were very thankful to Russell, Joanna, Benjamin and Joseph Soden for their visit to Guatemala in December 2016.
Oli O´Neil is busy recording special School´s Hour shows for this December.
Have a look at last year's Radio Christmas studio in Cafe Africa, Amersham, U.K.
Here at Radio Christmas we love Christmas music, but when you have heard "I wish it could be Christmas" 100 times,
then maybe now is the time to start thinking about extending your music library or your iTunes or Spotify playlist.
The team at Radio Christmas get to hear a lot of Christmas music and so we are suggesting the following iTunes playlist
and we are happy for your suggestions to add to this list.
Happy Christmas and enjoy a very musical Christmas.
