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:

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.

This is an opportunity for you to put your dollars to work making a real difference in a rural Honduran community. Your money supports a dynamic and participatory model, unique to Un Mundo…

Guiding our community-driven projects are the following values:

  • Involving the community as stakeholders;
  • Respect for the traditions and worldview of others;
  • A faith in human potential and the solidarity of many;
  • The revolutionary belief that through the undeniable force of honest dialogue we can achieve the unity and critical consciousness necessary to effect authentic change.

We invite you to consider giving to Un Mundo. You may want to give up one luxury item you’d otherwise buy for yourself, putting the money to work with Un Mundo instead. Perhaps you could gift in honor of a loved one. Or, if you are looking for a meaningful place to spread holiday cheer, Un Mundo is the perfect recipient of your charitable donation.
