FHI 360 has a long history of working in Honduras to improve lives in lasting ways. For many years, we have worked to strengthen the country’s education system, partnering closely with the Secretaría de Educación to identify and implement systemic changes that promote improved student achievement.
FHI 360 works to enhance employment opportunities for disadvantaged young people by building the capacity of higher education institutions to provide high-quality, market-relevant technical education through the Advance program, funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development. The program strengthens curriculum, teacher professional development, career services, and recruitment and admissions in select institutions, while also providing scholarships to promising disadvantaged students.
In the past, our work has also focused on protecting and sustaining the population of spiny lobsters and the individuals and communities that depend on this resource. The G-FISH Spiny Lobster Initiative reflected our comprehensive approach to development that spans the areas of environment, economic development, civil society and social marketing. Through G-FISH, we partnered with local organizations, businesses and government agencies to create locally led solutions that protect both jobs and the environment.
