Plan Honduras

Vision

A world in which all children realize their full potential in societies that respect people’s rights and dignity

Mission

Striving to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life of deprived children in developing countries through a process that unites people across cultures and adds meaning and value to their lives by:

  • Enabling deprived children, their families and communities to meet their basic needs and to increase their ability to participate and benefit from their societies.
  • Building relationships to increase understanding and unity among peoples of different cultures.
  • Promoting the rights and interests of the world’s children.

At Plan Honduras we work for the well-being of Honduran children, applying a child-centered community rights approach, which means that we are working to create a sustainable environment in which children, families and communities can develop and break the cycle of poverty.

We have been working in Honduras for 37 years.  We are currently collaborating with 575 communities sponsoring more than 34,000 girls and boys, although our programs benefit around 380,000 children indirectly.

We work in the country's dry corridor in the departments of Lempira, Intibucá, Copán, Santa Bárbara, La Paz and Choluteca.

Our country program aims for children to receive stimulation through comprehensive attention and care in their homes, to be protected from physical, psychological and sexual violence, have access to education at all levels, but with special emphasis on the third basic education cycle, and that excluded youth are empowered to make autonomous decisions.

Our plan for the 2014-2019 period is to achieve a paradigm shift to one that generates significant improvements in the realization of the rights of girls, boys and adolescents through four core programs:

  1. My First Steps
  2. My Happy Development
  3. Deciding my Future
  4. Governance and Advocacy
