LEARN, SERVE, ACT.

Your Journey Starts in Tegucigalpa…..

Welcome to Honduras’s largest city and capital. Home to the country’s leading university and soccer team, Tegucigalpa stands as a source of national pride. Yet it’s also a city of challenges. With rapid climbing population
rates, the city struggles with increased unemployment, water shortages, and crime.

Here, the need for just and creative urban development is felt deeply.

And so here, World Renew is committed to working with local partners to develop just programming and infrastructure.

As a part of this service and learning opportunity, you will learn from World Renew staff and experience Honduras’ development initiatives first hand, deepening your own knowledge, perspective, and heart for urban planning as well as your understanding of justice in a global context. It’s an unparalleled excursion that promises to shape the trajectory of your life for decades.

Purpose

Throughout 9 days, volunteers will travel and learn about sustainable urban development through World Renew’s local Honduran partner, Ministerios Cristianos de Mayordomia (Stewardship of Christian Ministries). MCM´s programs include home improvement and running water projects; community gardens that increase food stability; income generation for women and girls; and building community capacity through local leaders.

The group will worship with a local church, learn about the urban justice work being done by local leaders, learn about the history and culture of the area and visit local attractions, and serve by working alongside local volunteers on a community driven project.

Why:

World Renew adopts a unique, holistic approach to global development rooted in local partnerships and dedicated to the local church. The result is enduring change informed by community needs.
