Working With Children in Honduras



Coronavirus (COVID-19) impact on World Vision operations

In support of public health recommendations outlined by the World Health Organization, some sponsorship program activities have been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19. Activities may include sponsor queries and correspondence, sponsor visits, gift notifications and gift deliveries. These temporary suspensions may affect the information you receive from us in the coming weeks and months. Learn more about our response to COVID-19.
Unreliable rains have put additional strain on Hondurans in recent years. Key to combating hunger and disease in these conditions is to build household and community resilience.

An example of this is World Vision’s Farming Field School where students learn modern techniques to optimize land resources and water for increased crop production. A lack of clean water is another environmental and health issue for children in Honduras. Community volunteers, health staff, church leaders and sanitation committees partner with us to train families on treating water and practicing basic sanitation to improve the health and nutrition of children.
