Since it was founded by Pastor Jorge Pinto in 1999, the Manuelito Project
has directly or indirectly helped more than 2,000 children.

The Manuelito Project provides a home, food, clothing, education and lots of love to roughly 35 former homeless children, many who chose the streets to escape a life of abuse. The campus is located in Talanga, Honduras. An on-site school also provides free education and meals to impoverished children from Talanga. At the Manuelito Project, there are teachers and house parents for the children who live there serving around the clock while managing to raise a family of their own. Their ability to stay in Honduras and serve depends upon donors from the Journey North (Impact’s founder) and other churches across America.
