RDS-HN - Honduras

Rural communities in Honduras face food insecurity, extreme poverty and nutritional levels low enough to cause high rates of childhood stunting. Asociación Red de Desarrollo Sostenible-Honduras (RDS-HN) partners with community radios to provide educational and hands-on learning to improve the availability and use of nutritious traditional foods. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to unlock private, public and community resources for grassroots development in Honduras. RDS-HN’s activities support smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security, promote alternatives to migration and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.

This grant is part of a broader IAF initiative focused on supporting economic prosperity, democracy, governance, and alternatives to migration, consistent with the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
