TECHO Honduras recognizes CABEI’s volunteerism


TECHO Honduras has recognized the volunteer work carried out by the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) through its Program, "Bringing Light to your community."

This is the sixth consecutive year that the CABEI/TECHO alliance has contributed to improving the vulnerable living conditions of many low income families in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua and Costa Rica.

Some of the alliance’s regional achievements, which have been carried out with support from CABEI and TECHO volunteers, include construction of housing, community centers and recreational areas, as well as facilitation of access to basic services (installation of solar panels and rainwater harvesting systems).

The alliance has had a great impact on beneficiary families, whose spirits have been lifted by the hope that they have not been forgotten and that it is possible to strive for a better tomorrow. In addition, the Program raises the awareness of volunteers about realities different from theirs.
In this way, community members and volunteers, as well as their families and friends, join efforts and commit themselves to reducing poverty, thereby contributing their grain of sand to the fulfillment of the sustainable development goals (SDGs).

TECHO Honduras began operations in 2010 and has worked with over 819 families living in poor communities in Francisco Morazán, Choluteca, Comayagua, La Paz, La Ceiba, La Lima and Cortes. TECHO is a Latin American NGO led by young volunteers who work alongside families living in poverty in order to improve their quality of life through the implementation of projects that foster community organization and development.
