Additional Info about Us
Un Mundo works in rural Honduran communities where extreme inequality forces most families to live on the margins of survival. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the world – 80 percent of its population lives in poverty, with most of the poorest concentrated in rural areas. Since Un Mundo’s inception, our energies have been focused in the Cangrejal River Valley, located on the eastern edge of Pico Bonito National Park in Honduras.
We are founded on the principles of promoting dignity, community and self-sufficiency, Un Mundo is a non-profit organization dedicated to facilitating access to education, health care and livable wages in the Cangrejal watershed region of Northern Honduras. Guiding our community-driven projects are the following values: involving the community as stakeholders, respect for the traditions and worldview of others, a faith in human potential and the solidarity of many, and the revolutionary belief that through the undeniable force of honest dialogue we can achieve the unity and critical consciousness necessary to effect authentic change.
Un Mundo facilitates projects and programs based on the needs of the communities of the Cangrejal Valley. Our programs include carefully crafted workshops and complex, long-term initiatives designed to become a lasting part of the communities in which they are based. All projects and programs are facilitated by a local project director alongside an Un Mundo representative. All of our core programs are meeting needs that are otherwise unmet in the region.
