Challenge

Honduras faces high levels of poverty and inequality. 48.3 % of people live in poverty. United Way Honduras works in vulnerable communities, where many of the children that we support through our programs live thanks to the work that their families do in the informal or formal sector of the economy. Since March 16, Honduras is under Curfew as a preventive measure to stop the spread of COVID-19. This affectes people who receive daily income from their activities and those who lost their jobs.

Solution

This initiative is an emergency measure that seeks to support families who are not receiving the necessary income to face their basic food and hygiene needs due to the curfew, as well as contributing to the nutrition, especially of children in the growth stage, habits of hygiene necessary to prevent the spread of COVID - 19 and the mental health of the family nucleus.

Long-Term Impact

The initiative will help 10,000 people with food and hygiene products during this emergency stage and once the mandatory confinement is suspended, these communities will receive support through the projects of United Way Honduras and other allied organizations, to improve their socioeconomic context, through initiatives in the areas of health, education, entrepreneurship and job placement.
