Honduras

CARE’s work in Honduras

CARE has worked in Honduras since 1954. Huge inequalities, high crime rates and a high risk of natural disasters have made Honduras one of the least developed countries in Central America.

Today our work focuses on tackling the causes of poverty in Honduras’ poorest communities. Our current programmes include health and nutrition, small business development, agroforestry, irrigation, micro-watershed protection and environmental education. We work with farmers to help them grow different crops and access markets, to improve their livelihoods and access to food.

CARE's reach

We work in 79 developing countries, saving lives in emergencies and finding long-term solutions to poverty for millions of people every year.

About CARE

Founded in 1945 to send 'CARE packages' to people recovering from war, we have been fighting poverty in the world’s poorest countries for 70 years.

Our mission

We empower women and girls to fulfil their potential – because when one woman is helped out of poverty, she brings her family and community with her.

Your support

Your support is what makes our poverty-fighting work possible. You can trust us to spend our funds wisely and effectively to help people in need.
