Country Strategy

Honduras struggles with high unemployment, violence, insecurity, and multi-year droughts. These challenges contribute to high levels of U.S.-bound migration, especially among youth. Our grants in Honduras expand economic opportunity, enhance peace and security, improve democratic governance, and reduce the motivation to migrate. Our grantee partners work with underserved groups in rural and high migrant-sending communities in 17 of the country’s 18 departments. Their projects increase employment and income-generating opportunities through job training, small business development, and improved agricultural production.

We awarded our first grant in Honduras in 1972. Since then, we have provided $44.9 million through 216 grants to local organizations.
