Project - Homes for Lenca coffee workers in the mountains of Honduras.

Updated: Oct 20, 2023

$50,000 will build 5 homes.

With the help of local Honduran leaders, we have identified 5 Lenca families that we would like to bless with a home. (See photos below)


In Honduras, the Lenca people also known as Lepa Wiran, meaning “Jaguar People” or “People of The Jaguar” are the largest tribal group, with an estimated population of more than 450,000. The Lenca are a strong peaceful people fighting to preserve their identity and culture. There are about 612 Lenca communities, many in remote hard-to-reach mountainous areas that lack basic services such as running water, roads or transportation. The highland regions inhabited by the Lenca are suitable for coffee cultivation due to their altitude, climate, and soil quality. Their main employment is as coffee workers in the coffee farms in the area.



Your coffee shop, family, friends, coworkers, and business could easily sponsor an entire home. We have customized online giving options, literature, memes, and printed material to help you be successful.

With your donation and the oversight of Coffee Homes leadership, local Honduran leadership and local family and friend volunteers (including you if you are interested) we will be able to build a secure, clean, and strong home for a lenca family using materials from their own land. The lumber will be cut from trees on their land with a portable sawmill. Fly to Honduras to give the family the keys to their new home.
