OUR STORY

It started with a lamborghini.
The car was parked in the garage of Dr. Jeff Rice, an oralmaxillo facial surgeon in Pennsylvania. 
After traveling abroad for medical missions—and meeting Ricardo Castro, a native Honduran and former director of the Global Health Organization in Central America—he decided to found the Rice Foundation. 
So in 2007, he sold the lamborghini.
With the money he earned as a result, he and Ricardo began to focus on sharing the gospel and joining in God’s redemption work in Honduras. Ricardo noticed that most international missions groups traveled to Tegucigalpa, so the Rice Foundation decided to work in northern Honduras—in the villages along the coast and in the mountains near the Guatemalan border.
In the following years, the Rice Foundation has grown to include education, construction, and clean water projects—in addition to providing medical relief and leadership development to the people of Honduras.
