In 2021, FFPC donors set out to fund the women’s income-generation centre in San Antonio, Honduras. In May 2023, the community gathered to celebrate the grand opening of the centre! 

The centre will provide the women in the community with a dedicated space where they can have regular access to technical training, empowerment workshops, and equipment for learning skills such as sewing and baking. These workshops will allow the women to start their own businesses to make an income that will help uplift their families.

“Since we started the women’s training project in our community, we have seen how God’s mercy and love is multiplied in the lives of our families. Through the technical school, the greenhouses, the different training courses, and now the centre, we have had a very positive change in our lives and in the lives of our families. There are not enough words to express all of the gratitude that the San Antonio community has for the donors.”
– Gabriela, Leader of the women’s group

In addition to providing technical workshops to enhance income-generating potential, the centre will also serve the community as a central place for board meetings, events, religious services, medical outreach programs, and other community gatherings. The centre will serve more than 1,800 residents across San Antonio and its neighbouring communities of Choacapa, La Chorrera, Matamula, Corral de Piedra, La Estanzuela, and Santa Rosita, and will allow for diversification of the workshops offered, attracting more women to participate.

Thank you for providing a space for connection, support, learning, and growth. The centre will strengthen community bonds, foster personal development, and will enhance the quality of life for community members, essential for sustainable development. We could not have built it without you!
