Honduras, Santa Fe

CONTEXT

Honduras is the second poorest country in Central America and is considered one of the poorest regions of the world. This has a strong impact on its educational system as well. Many children are not even able to attend school, as they are forced to work. Families do not have enough resources to feed themselves, while also allowing their kids to go to school. While Honduras has recently made progress in providing education to the country’s children, it is still far away from being sufficient. Some of the main challenges that the country is facing, is providing access to education, having very weak learning outcomes, and not providing enough learning materials. In general, one can say that Honduras lacks school and school materials.
