Our special partnership with Habitat Honduras has had a dramatic impact on the residents of Honduras and our volunteers. Nearly 70% of the Honduran population lives in poverty, of which 44% are extremely poor. Local volunteers travel to Honduras annually to build in partnership with Honduran families. Since 2012, Habitat Wake has built 174 homes in Honduras, including a 32-home community in El Rosario. Local residents named the town playground” Parque Wake County.” This beautiful park serves as tangible evidence that our partnership is making a difference.
Habitat's next trip to Honduras will be in spring of 2020.
