Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Latin America and has the world’s highest murder rate. More than half of the population lives in poverty and per capita income is one of the lowest in the region.

The country suffers from extraordinarily unequal distribution of income, as well as high underemployment. While historically dependent on the export of bananas and coffee, Honduras has diversified its exports to include apparel and automobile wire harnessing.

Honduras’s economy depends heavily on US trade and remittances. Recently, it has become a hub for international call centres.Honduras was declared one of the heavily indebted poor countries by the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. The increased productivity needed to break Honduras’ persistent high poverty rate depends, in part, on further improvements in education


Historically, Paraguay has not valued education highly. While the government provides public education, many children are not able to attend because their families need them to bring in extra income, there are no schools in their area or the cost of uniforms, textbooks and supplies is simply too much.

The students who do attend government schools often get a poor education because classrooms are overcrowded, teachers are under qualified, underpaid and unmotivated, schools lack adequate resources and the infrastructure is crumbling. In addition, the dropout rate remains very high.

Generation Rising is currently expanding into Honduras by partnering with local churches and groups who have a vision to provide a quality education in their community.
