Clean Water for Honduras.
Help Us Address the Root Causes of Migration in Honduras by Providing Clean Water
In Honduras, about 638,000 lack access to clean water resulting in outbreaks of deadly disease and keeping people in poverty. Lack of opportunities in rural areas due to poverty results in migration of people from Honduras. World Vision has a comprehensive plan to work with communities so they can lift themselves out of poverty and provision of clean water is a critical part of this effort. Our goal is to reach 200,000 people with clean water between 2021-2025 which is nearly one out of every 3 people lacking water in the entire country.

In Honduras, World Vision works with communities to protect watersheds where there are springs. By protecting and managing these micro-watersheds, we can improve the water flow from the springs and help ensure resilience from changing weather patterns. World Vision then constructs collection tanks and pipelines using primarily gravity to provide water into communities. We provide a high level of water service by providing water connections inside the home or right outside the door. The level of community involvement in constructing the water systems in Honduras is outstanding. Communities support the excavation of trenches for pipelines and households regularly contribute tariffs, monitored through metered systems. Water committees and plumbing groups in communities are trained to help build latrines and maintain water systems.
We also provide clean water and handwashing education in schools including through our partnership with Sesame Street and the WASH-UP! effort. This program empowers children to be positive change agents in communities to ensure safe water storage, hand washing, and safe sanitation.
Please help us bring lasting change to communities in Honduras with your gift of life-saving clean water.
At World Vision, stewardship is an integral part of everything we do. In rare cases where donations exceed what is needed, or where local conditions prevent program implementation, World Vision will redirect funds to similar activities to help children and families in need.
The multiplying effect from grants and donated goods may change throughout the year on identical or similar offers due to variations in the start and end dates of donor grants and our programs.
