Ch'orti' Classes in Honduras

Ch'orti' classes in Honduras

This project provides a sustainable secondary education for children in rural Indigenous communities in Honduras. Support for this project has helped us to bring in resources and secondary level teachers making it possible for children in the Copan area to earn their secondary education for the first time.

In addition we aim to empower local people through income generation and food security projects and encourage traditional culture.  

Ch’orti’ is the local indigenous dialect in the area of Honduras where we work. As the language was being used less and less it was an area we wanted to focus on encouraging. Bringing the language back also brings back local culture and belonging which is extremely important in Latin indigenous societies.

Thanks to donations to the GVI Charitable Trust, we are able to pay the wages of a local Chórti´ teacher, thus providing an income and keeping this dwindling language alive. The community are 100% behind this initiative and it has grown to become a valuable part of the overall project.
