HONDURAS:

Fostering resilience for farmers and families

In Honduras’ Dry Corridor, named for its months of drought and precarious climate, many families struggle with water scarcity. Farmers often don’t have enough water to properly tend to their crops and fields. Parents struggle with poor household sanitation that contributes to illness and malnutrition in children.

But a new program called the Dry Corridor Alliance – PROSASUR is building the resiliency of 6,000 poor and extreme poor families in this region, through nutrition education and counseling, household sanitation projects, training for smallholder farmers and more.
