TOGETHER FOR A JUST WORLD

Honduras

Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Latin America. About 67 percent of the population lives in poverty. For many, migration is the last hope for a better life. 14 percent of the Honduran population live as migrants in the USA - most of them without papers.

 

 

 

In our project work we stand up for the rights of migrants. We strengthen migration committees and self-help groups to counter the effects of labour migration. We support the health care of migrants and offer protection against legal violations.

After Hurricane Eta and Iota: Reconstruction and food security for families

In November 2020, two hurricanes hit the Potrerillos region in Honduras. Only within 15 days. With a reconstruction project, AWO International helps families to get back into a normal life and strengthens disaster risk management within the community in order to prepare the community for future natural disasters.
