Who are The Carpenteros and Friends?

The Carpenteros are proud to work in partnership with World Renew (Canada and Honduras), Diaconia Nacional, Alfalit, Harvest Honduras, MCM/Stewardship of Christian Ministries and the Association for a More Just Society in Honduras to provide improvements to basic houses, as well as support for micro-finance cooperatives, education, health and sanitation, leadership training, and various community improvement projects.

How You Can Help

The needs in Honduras may be immense, but by working hand-in-hand with our Honduran brothers and sisters, it is possible to make a lasting difference.  And your support, of any size, can have a profound impact on Honduran communities, families and individuals.

The Carpenteros work in partnership with Harvest Honduras and with World Renew and its Honduran partners Diaconia Nacional, Alfalit, MCM/Stewardship of Christian Ministries and the Association for a More Just Society in Honduras. These partners do not determine or tell a community what its needs are. Rather, through consultation and assessment of the community's strength and weaknesses, the priorities are identified and a strategy is developed to achieve the community's goals. The Carpenteros partner with willing communities, so that by working together we can bring about lasting improvement for Hondurans in need.
