Olancho Aid Foundation Inc.

The Olancho Aid Foundation, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit, faith-based organization that empowers Honduran youth to transform themselves, their communities and their country through education.

In this tradition, Olancho Aid sponsors Solidarity Projects aimed at joining communities in Honduras with the larger human family. Where there exists suffering and oppression, Olancho Aid invites student, professional and church groups to visit Honduras and work with local communities to restore justice.

Deeply embedded in this program is the idea that we are all helpers; every person is lifted to a higher place when acting in communion with their brothers and sisters, regardless of nationality, economic status, education level or personal resources.

Our History

In 1991, a priest traveled to Olancho and quickly recognized a gap in educational services in the region. Through his efforts and the support of the community, several schools were developed to provide primary, secondary, bilingual, and special needs education along with solidarity projects to serve communities in and around Juticalpa. As the programs grew, the Olancho Aid Foundation was formed and incorporated as a US 501(c) 3 nonprofit to help sustain the impact.

Our Mission

To empower Honduran youth to transform themselves, their communities and their country through education. Our organization’s vision is to turn those living marginally into active participants within their communities and create social change through learning.
The Olancho Aid Foundation is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization.
