Volunteer Honduras

  :: Volunteer Honduras

Honduras is a tropical mountainous country famed for its biodiversity and coral reefs. However it’s also one of the poorest countries in the northern hemisphere, with money sent home from overseas, a major source of income.

You can help volunteer projects through Save the Children. Volunteering to build houses you will take part in all aspects of building maintenance - anywhere from brick making to laying foundations. In some parts of the western highlands, three families or more live under one roof and your voluntary building work can help alleviate this poverty.

We also have humanitarian volunteer projects like teaching practical skills to deaf children, getting medical experience at a local hospital in La Esperanza and teaching music at a school in Tegucigalpa. Honduras is a country desperately in need of volunteers and you can make a difference.

La Esperanza

The best town for climbing The Imbabura volcano, is located deep in Hunduran foothills, where sprawling fields of sugar cane grow in the ashen earth of old eruptions. A colonial town with a mixture of indigenous Lenca and pre-Colombian influences, it's a perfect destination for volunteers who want to stray off the beaten track.

Tegucigalpa

Tegucigalpa or 'Silver Mountain' was originally an old mining town, founded on the gold and silver of the Spanish Conquest. Honduras's capital city has a population of over 1.6 million, composed of quaint mountain towns such as Yuscaran, where they produce local moonshine and roll Cubano cigars. The climate of Tegucigalpa is ideal for volunteers who want to experience the beauty of the tropics without any of the discomfort. Sitting 3000ft above sea level, Tegucigalpa captures the cool breezes of the Pacific while basking in the equatorial sun.

Cactus @ i-to-i

Honduras has a rich store of natural resources but remains one of the poorest countries in Latin America. In the absence of government aid, many development projects rely heavily on external help. Volunteer work in Honduras is plentiful and volunteers are in great demand. One of the key Non Governmental Organisations you could work alongside is Save the Children. Alongside Save the Children i-to-i has built five schools and 24 homes. Both in the capital city of Tegucigalpa and in rural communities, i-to-i volunteer projects are slowly, but surely, making a difference.
