Information

We unite ourselves as a community to care
for Honduran children in need.

Each year, we attract international missionaries who make either a 2½ year or a 1½ year commitment of service to the Farm of the Child. Missionaries come from all different walks of life in order to serve in a variety of ministries such as finance/accounting, social work, psychology, pastoral ministry, teaching, special education, health care, maintenance/construction supervision, vocational training, and adolescent home mentor. Before arriving at the Farm, missionaries attend language school in Guatemala for 6-8 weeks. Once they arrive at the Farm, missionaries live together and are guided by the four pillars of community, spirituality, simplicity and service. If you think you might be called to serve in the capacity of an international missionary with our organization, please contact us by email at missions@farmofthechild.org or phone at 727-475-4459.
