The Conference is organized by a team of volunteers with a broad range of experience and backgrounds. What unites us is our desire to do our part to support projects, programs and individuals who are making a difference for the sustainable betterment and development of Honduran communities.
The mission of the Conference is to enable networking, collaboration and the sharing of best practices among individuals and organizations whose projects address the following key elements in a country’s socioeconomic progress: health, education, and the development of sustainable and economically vibrant communities.
”The conference made me more aware of the work that other organizations of various sizes and types are doing across the country, which will illuminate the work that I do with my own organization every day. The connections that I made and ideas we've already begun to hatch were transformative.”
”The Conference was an excellent networking opportunity; It is very positive to have collaboration in three sectors (civil society (NGOs), Private Sector, and Honduran Government (National, local plus USAID). I was able to reconnect with attendees from prior years and make new contacts. It was a great, positive ambiance.”

”The opportunities for networking and connections were fantastic, and I felt like I got a much better “big” picture of NGO presence in Honduras.”
