Clean Water & Sanitation
In La Paz Honduras, many people in poor areas have no access to sanitary bathrooms. Poorly built outhouses are constructed resulting in contaminated water sources. HCP is tackling this problem by installing safe, sanitary latrines for these families.
In 2021, we installed 100 ceramic water filters, 50 environmentally safe pour-flush latrines, and 50 pilas (water storage) in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of La Paz. We also installed a well that provides a water source to the entire neighborhood. 290 people now have access to clean water and sanitation.
Education – The International Training Center (ITC)
The ITC is an educational center working with people to finish high school, learn computer skills, vocational English, and other skills that will help them find a job and become self-sufficient.
In 2021, our Adult High School GED program graduated 36 students. Our Vocational English Program graduated 43 students.
The Women’s Empowerment Initiative was born out of this need. Our area of focus is to provide basic needs for single mom households, then focus on how we can help them become self-sufficient through education, jobs skills, and mentoring. We provide training for disempowered women so they can earn an income and provide for their families.
From sports and youth programs to feeding nights, HCP is all about building relationships. Community programs are the perfect way to connect with our friends in La Paz and learn how we can best serve their community.
