Walk Beside Me for Knowledge (WBK) is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to providing affordable, quality education in Honduras.
Most public schools in Honduras are overcrowded and underfunded. Private bilingual schools are on the rise, but are often too expensive and lack financial aid. We believe that every child has the right to an education such that they may expand their horizons and perhaps one day change the world.
WBK currently operates two schools: Smart Kids Bilingual School and Coral Springs Bilingual School. Each of these schools is volunteer run, with small class sizes and very low tuition costs. Additionally, we provide scholarships to 30% of our students, and we aim to accommodate all families with demonstrated financial need.
An investment in education pays the best interest.
– Hans Christian Anderson
Children at our schools receive an immersion based bilingual education thanks to our team of international volunteers and local teachers. Students leave with a good command of the English language, a skill which opens the doors to better paying jobs, access to higher education, and other opportunities normally unavailable to them.
Our organization is currently seeking native English speakers as long-term volunteer teachers. For more information about volunteering with us, click here
