About Habitat Honduras

Habitat for Humanity started operations in Honduras in 1989 and received legal status in 1993. Its national office is in San Pedro Sula, and it has seven regional offices covering about 70 municipalities. Habitat for Humanity Honduras is an organization focused on the construction and improvement of housing solutions. With a commitment to positively impact communities, they improve the quality of life for the most vulnerable families in the country. With a population of about 8.5 million people, Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere.

Many rural areas do not receive services such as access to clean water. In these regions, many survive from subsistence agriculture and extra income earned during coffee picking season. Habitat for Humanity Honduras believes in focusing on the existing strengths of a community, long-term advocacy efforts, and building on a ‘sustainable livelihoods framework’ which is used to identify and support what a community possesses in various forms of capital (human, natural, financial, physical and social) rather than concentrating on what they do not possess.

Global Village Trip

For over a decade, volunteer groups from the Triangle have traveled to Honduras to build homes, communities, and hope. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Global Village trips have been paused until further notice and look forward to resuming these trips when we can.
