AGROS IN HONDURAS

Our work in Honduras began in 2004 with Nuevo Amanacer, which is now home to 13 hard-working families. Country-wide, Honduras is home to four Agros villages, where we partner with more than 90 families, helping them to gain access to education, agricultural training, health care and sanitation, clean water, and other resources critical to lifelong health and success.
