Support Un Mundo to continue our comprehensive and revolutionary approach to community development in Honduras in 2013.
Un Mundo works in rural Honduran communities where extreme inequality forces most families to live on the margins of survival. Un Mundo's approach to facing these challenges is based on strengthening and developing communities to set their own goals and organize themselves to accomplish their collective needs in the areas of public health, education and economic sustainability.
"Viva Un Mundo" means "Long-Live Un Mundo"... Your support will ensure the success of our important work in 2013 and beyond.
Our projects include:
- Construction of the first public high schools in the region
- Development of a library and mobile literacy project
- Facilitation of a multi-arts festival that documents local traditions and regional history
- Education access for low-income youth through a university work-study scholarships
- Capacitation of local midwives to improve healthcare services for women and children
- Reduction of water contamination through improved potable, gray and black water systems
- Cultivation of education and healthcare for individuals with various mental and physical disabilities
Un Mundo does a lot with a little. Your contribution, in any amount, will ensure that we can maintain our current projects and build upon them in 2013. As a community-based organization, we look to our broader community to ensure our long-term success.
