Plan has worked in Honduras since 1977 to bring lasting improvements to children’s lives. Currently, as child malnutrition rates increase across the country, we are formulating a food security strategy.
Plan’s work focuses on the ‘poverty corridor’ that runs across west and south Honduras, helping children and their families in some 600 communities to identify and implement projects.
