The Boys Home
Ninos de la Luz (Children of the Light) was founded in 1994 by Bill Kwiatkowski to provide a place of refuge for a few homeless boys. Today he and his wife, Mary, are parents of up to 30 boys and directors of a seven-acre project that consists of a large dormitory, two cottages, a chapel, kitchen/cafeteria, playground and soccer field, and an elementary school. The project is in the village of Armenia Bonito near La Ceiba on the northern coast of Honduras
As the parent organization of Ninos de la Luz (Children of the Light), Heart4Children’s passion is to demonstrate God’s love by helping meet the needs of children. We wholeheartedly support the vision of Ninos de la Luz to provide a safe, loving, family environment for boys in need.
We seek sponsors to help fund the living expenses of the boys at the home. You can partner with us to provide a boy with their physical and educational needs for $75.00 per month.

We believe that transparency is key in our partnership with donors. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions that we get asked when someone is considering a donation to the school.
WHAT DOES IT COST TO SPONSOR ONE OF THE BOYS IN THE BOYS HOME?
Sponsoring on of our boys only costs $75.00 per month.
If you are not quite ready to give $75.00 per month, we invite you to make a monthly donation to the general fund!
WHAT DOES MY SPONSORSHIP COVER?
Donations provide food, clothing, shelter, transportation, security, and education for the boys living at the boys home. We ask our donors to consider what it is like to have a child. You are the primary provider of all of their basic needs. Ninos de la Luz does exactly that, but for over 20 boys at a time! For that reason, our sponsorships are an imperative part of our ability to keep the boys home running.
WHAT ARE THE AGES OF THE BOYS AT THE HOME?
The boys range from 5 years old to 24 years old. A unique aspect of this ministry is that the older boys do not have to leave the home when they turn 18. They can continue their education in university or trade school until they are adequately prepared to live on their own.
HOW DID THE BOYS COME TO LIVE AT THE HOME?
Each boy's story is different. Some of them were rescued from the streets. Some of them came from families who could no longer afford to support them due to the loss of a mother, father, or both.
WHAT IS THE GREATEST CURRENT FINANCIAL NEED?
Although post high school education is more affordable in Honduras, it still requires approximately $300 per month for each young man to attend university or trade school. On average there are five who are enrolled each year.
