Mission: The primary purpose of amigos of honduras is to help hondurans permanently improve their lives by giving them a way to have clean, potable, plentiful water. In the mountains of honduras people spend much of their day gathering water. We build water lines to help them alleviate this issue. In 2015 our major accomplishment was a 4 inch 8 kilometer pipeline that benefitted 8 different villages or about 5000 people. Most of what we spend goes to water projects with a small percentage used for education.
Programs: The goal of our water projects is to provide the construction materials to build clean water lines and tanks with local hondurans providing the labor under the direction of a honduran engineer.
other projects include school renovations, bathrooms, and lunch program in the mountains of guatemala, school projects in those same mountains and smaller house construction projects near our water projects in comayagua.
I have been involved with Amigos of Hunduras for about 7 years. I spent a week and traveled down with the principals and saw first hand the great work they have been doing. They focus on mainly build water project and building schools in the mountains of central Honduras. The requirement is that the villagers do all the labor and Amigos provides the materials and engineering. No overhead taken by organization and principals are top notch.
