Overview of 2023
In 2023, the work in Honduras supported by the Tigh Sgoile Trust is going from strength to strength. In February, our partners gained legal status for their organisation, the Lenca Foundation for Community Development, (FUNLEDCOM). This means the possibility of new relationships of collaboration with Honduran universities and government organisations.
The three main areas of project work continue to be education, farming and apprenticeships. Two young people are learning to be barbers and hairdressers. 8 more acres are being developed for coffee-growing. 1,000 trees are being planted as part of a reforestation project. A new element is the growing of avocado trees. And the number of students registered on the education programme has increased to 51. We wish all the young people and their families every success in the months ahead.
