About Honduras

Kids growing up in poverty in Honduras face many tough challenges, including poor hygiene and sanitation problems which lead to widespread parasite infections, dangerous gang violence that starts far too young, and big gender gaps in wages, putting girls even further behind.

That's why we focus on providing crucial health programs along with effective anti-parasite treatments, enriched youth programs to help kids learn better alternatives to street gangs, and empowerment programs to equip both boys and girls with skills in demand.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
