What ideas do you have that can help us at Sharefish break the cycle of poverty in remote villages of Honduras through education?

We started Sharefish (www.sharefish.org) two years ago in two remote villages in Honduras. So far we have 71 children in a conditional cash transfer sponsorship program who are now in school instead of selling food in the streets or gleaning sugar cane in the fields. We have also built two libraries and have found that the people who know how to read are teaching those who want to learn how to read now that they have the resources to do it. I would welcome any ideas you have to help us in our quest to work with these wonderful hard working people to break the cycle of poverty in these and other remote villages.
