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 2023, we installed 107 water filters, 30 environmentally safe pour-flush latrines, and 27 pilas (water storage) in the neighborhoods of La Paz.
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 2023, 84 individuals completed vocational English, sewing, and beauty classes, and the Adult High School GED program graduated 44 students. We also provided bags with school supplies to children in the lower grades.
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. In 2023, we held almost 70 community-oriented events; we served 63 meals which fed 5,000 people; we revitalized schools with fresh paint; and we transformed a local park.
