Alliances as the key to success

SELF is a passionate, multi-cultural team all working together for a healthier Honduras. We have a Honduran staff, lead by our in-country director, who is on the ground year-round. Our Board of Directors meets quarterly and regularly visits Honduras. Alliances are vital to our success: our projects typically have multiple partners, most importantly the municipalities and the communities themselves.
