Honduras

Marcala, Honduras

We are so excited to work with you to build a vocational training center for young adults in Marcala, Honduras! Honduras is an impoverished country with the highest level of income inequality in all of Latin America. With more than 60% of the population living in poverty and one of the world’s highest murder rates, Honduras faces many serious barriers to progress.

Food For The Poor Canada in partnership with CEPUDO will support this community with a vocational training center focusing on agricultural training for young adults! This is the first phase of a larger project that will include houses, income generating projects, sanitation and other key elements for a safe and prosperous community.  The training center will provide young people and community members with the skills for a sustainable future.
