Honduras: UrbanPromise Honduras

About this ministry

UrbanPromise Honduras became the first official UrbanPromise site outside of North America in 2009, operating in high-need communities in Copan Ruinás, working with at risk children and youth. Our mission is to inspire the children and youth of Honduras to reach their potential by equipping them with the skills necessary for life management, academic achievement, spiritual growth, and leadership rooted in the Christian faith.
