In Honduras, CARE’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.
CARE began operations in Honduras in 1954, providing emergency assistance to hurricane victims and running small-scale food programs. CARE officially established its country office in Honduras in 1959, beginning with food distribution programs and eventually moving toward a sustainable development program.
