Our Efforts in Honduras
Catalyste+ has been working in Honduras since 1975, improving water management and sanitation practices, supporting farming co-operatives, and collaborating with the local government to stimulate inclusive economic growth. Our focus on economic development continues as we build the capacity of businesses and institutions in agriculture and tourism—sectors that provide employment to many marginalized people, particularly women.
Graciela Galeano, Country Representative
The Accelerating Women’s Empowerment program provides technical assistance to women farmers, micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs), and cooperatives to improve production, profitability and environmental sustainability. We’re focused on women’s empowerment and more equitable work environments.
