Program Overview

Program Description:
If you get fired up by the prospect of a overseas building project, head to Honduras. You can help build homes and schools in the poorest parts of the Western Highlands. The native Lenca people live in extreme poverty, often three families under one roof. But along with Save the Children, you could help them to make a new start. This is a real hands-on project where you help with everything from making sun dried bricks, to painting outside walls. The best bit is seeing the results of your work as you help families move into their new homes, or watch students attend the first day at their new school.

On our building projects in Honduras we work with Save The Children, whose activities are spread over a geographic area that includes the departments of Intibuca, Choluteca, Valle and Francisco Morazan. Trip highlights: * Working alongside the family who will live in the house you build - what a way to make friends! * Soaking up the laid back way of life in the highlands of Honduras * Exploring this incredible country on the weekends

The native Lenca people of the Western Highlands often live in poverty stricken conditions, sometimes with three families under one roof. Volunteers are desperately needed to help provide better homes for people who really need them as well as helping the communities build homes of their own.
Setting Description:
The building in Honduras project is based in the small town of La Esperanza (pop 13,000)which is in the Western Highlands of Honduras. It is about 3-4 hours by bus from the capital Tegucigalpa. La Esperanza is populated mainly by the indigenous Lenca people, and the town is best known for its traditional Sunday market.
