In HondurasCARE’s work focuses on tackling the causes of poverty in Honduras’ poorest communities. Our current programs include health and nutrition, small business development, agroforestry, irrigation, micro-watershed protection and environmental education. We work with farmers to help them grow different crops and access markets, to improve their livelihoods and access to food.
