Volunteering in Honduras


Honduras does not escape from a reality that affects many Central American countries, such as the inequality of many of its citizens.

For many families their main source of income is from jobs in large textile companies and most of these workers are women, young people and single mothers. So we try to do our part by volunteering in Honduras.
