We work in La Esperanza located in the Intibuca Province of Honduras.
In this region, the Lenca are the largest indigenous group with an estimated population of about 100,000.
1 in 4 children in Honduras suffer from malnutrition and 75% of rural populations such as the Lenca Indians live in extreme poverty.
We respond to this need through our 4 feeding centers (3 of which are co-located in primary schools) and serve over 800 children each day. Our desire to continue to build more feeding centers in this region is great to help battle malnutrition and hunger.
