Change is coming slowly to Honduras.  In many communities the average income is still as little as one or two dollars per day. No matter how hard these people work, simply surviving is a constant struggle.

However, even the poorest of the poor aspire to provide a better future for their children and grandchildren. You can help make that goal possible by improving their access to safe drinking water, latrines, first aid supplies and basic sanitary improvements to their very modest homes.  Since the ONE DAY CHALLENGE campaign began in 2011, it has repaired homes, provided clean water, and improved safety and sanitation for thousands of Hondurans.

ONE DAY CHALLENGE 2020 - CALLEJAS

In 2020, the ONE DAY CHALLENGE will be in support of the village of CALLEJAS, in southern Honduras.  The residents of Callejas were experiencing extreme poverty even before the COVID pandemic.  But recent months have seen the loss of even the few part-time jobs in fishing and agricultural.  This year¹s One Day Challenge will repair the leaking roof at the three-room elementary school, and provide home improvements for some of the most impoverished families.  These improvements include roof and wall repairs, concrete floors, pilas and latrines.

The ONE DAY CHALLENGE is a very simple, but effective, concept – by dedicating one day of your income, you can help to bring new hope and transformation to Hondurans who earn as little as a dollar or two per day. And every penny you give will go directly to helping those who need it most, and in a way that brings about lasting improvement.

Each year the ONE DAY CHALLENGE campaign focuses on a different Honduran community -- the community that our Honduran partners have told us is in tremendous need, but also where the local residents are willing and eager to participate in building the foundation for a better future.
