About this non-profit:

The Visionaries travels to a remote region in Honduras to showcase Church World Service’s work with its in-country partner, the Mennonite Social Action Commission. One of the biggest challenges Hondurans face is the lack of food and nutritional security, which has resulted in chronic malnutrition rates among children under five as high as 30 percent in some communities. Honduras is the third poorest country in Central America, with nearly half the population living on less than two dollars a day. Much of its rural poverty stems from the mismanagement of its natural resources, which has led to deforestation and of the contamination its drinking water. In Honduras, Church World Service works to promote sustainable agriculture and to educate families about eating healthily and planting family gardens.
