Volunteer Opportunities in Northern Honduras

The North Coast of Honduras, centering on La Ceiba, is one of the most active volunteering centers in Central America. Dozens of organizations have offices in the city and help arrange projects for anyone willing to lend a helping hand. Two standouts are Guaruma (tel. 504/2406-6782), a Honduras-based nonprofit organization that helps promote environmental awareness and conservation in the Río Cangrejal watershed on the eastern edge of Pico Bonito National Park, and Children of the Light (tel. 504/3304-1414; www.thechildrenofthelight.org), a Christian organization that has built a school and organized other community outreach projects for street children in the region.
