Honduras

Country Overview

Honduras is a Central American nation boasting a stunningly beautiful landscape--jungles, forests, mountains, and beaches. But it is one of the poorest countries in the western hemisphere, and it has the highest rate of intentional homicide in the world.

Less than half of Honduran children complete more than three years of education, which is why UrbanPromise Honduras focuses so heavily on academic achievement.

Our programs promote a culture of education and a love of learning.

Our AfterSchool Programs assist children from grades 1-6, providing the support necessary for long-term academic success.
