San Antonio Village, Honduras

We are so excited to work with you to build a sustainable village in San Antonio, 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 San Antonio through a number of initiatives, the first being the construction of a vocational training centre focusing on agricultural training for young adults in grades 7-9! This is the initial phase of a larger project that includes supporting local coffee farmers and beekeepers, providing women’s empowerment training workshops, and building safe and secure homes for families in the community to provide a sustainable future.
