Hanes partners with Child Care Foundation to support early education in Honduras
Hanes launched a strategic alliance with the Foundation for Child Care (Fundación Amigos Guarderías Infantiles) in Honduras to provide scholarships to children of employees working at Choloma, Jasper and Hanes Ink plants. The alliance slogan is “Transforming lives through education.”
This new pilot scholarship program will benefit children at the nursery, pre-school and elementary levels.
The scholarships will cover 70 percent of the total cost of education for 110 employee children who will receive a superior quality education, daily meals and snacks, daycare services, and basic in-house medical attention. The children will also be able to use the foundation’s facilities, which include a computer lab, recreational areas, dining area, classrooms, auditorium, music class and playground. In addition, the children will be able to attend the foundation’s facilities for special programs with recreational activities and daycare service during school vacations.
This alliance greatly impacts the community since the foundation was conceived to help low-income working parents with daycare services and quality education for their children. The schedule of the services provided by the school and daycare are also designed to fit the needs of the company’s employees.
