Association of Franciscan Boystowns and Girlstowns (APUFRAM)
Is a non-profit, secular, apolitical organitation whose purpose is to improve the quality of life and promote human development, through comprehensive education in both the formal and non-formal area.
It serves those sectors of Honduras, where fewer opportunities are available.
These objectives have been extended to the Dominican Republic since 2002.
APUFRAM has several schools in different areas.
Attached to the schools are homes: for girls, boys, younger children and single mothers.
