Children at a day orphanage in Honduras participate in a robotics camp hosted by members of Mountain View’s Highway Community church.
As it has done every other year since 2011, The Highway Community church in Mountain View sent a team to Santa Bárbara, Honduras, in February to work at a day orphanage run by Bay Area organization Footsteps Missions.
“It is very poor there,” said Mountain View resident Daryl Smithgall, director of Footsteps Missions, of the Central American country. “Jobs are scarce and training is hard to find, so we are helping the children with the least opportunity to have the possibility of education that will help them to learn new skills, prepare for jobs, learn how to be people of character and integrity and how to become leaders for the future (through the day orphanage).”
