About Us

Our mission is to end extreme poverty and violence through education and youth empowerment. Honduras has the worst gang epidemic on the planet. Each year, thousands of children join gangs like MS-13 and Mara 18. Honduras is also the 2nd poorest nation in the western hemisphere, where 66.2% of its people live in poverty. With access to a quality education and jobs the Honduran people can fight back. What began as a small penny drive in 2006 grew and grew, eventually raising hundreds of thousands of dollars together through small fundraisers.

Now, SHH build schools throughout northern Honduras with the goal of reaching 100 rural villages who need a school structure. SHH has also created a village for 40 displaced families, provided school scholarships to girls, and this year, opened our second children's home.

SHH hosts nearly 1,000 volunteers from all over the world each year in Honduras, and nearly 100 high school and universities have created SHH Chapters to raise funds and help the organization reach its goal of building 1,000 schools . Students Helping Honduras (SHH) is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization.
