ACOES has many projects, but the main project where the volunteers work are:
“Casas Populorum Progressio” (Houses of The Progress of the Towns [Latin])
The houses are homes for young people (18-24 years old) of indigenous communities that have the restlessness and the desire to study and to work by the most needed. The young people have the opportunity to form themselves as an integral way serving as dynamism elements of the development of their villages of origin.
The primary target of the Houses is to help to improve the educative quality of life of these young people with necessities and preoccupations by means of its integral qualification. Also, it has been tried to qualify them for the overcoming of the formal study plan of the Honduran Government, delegate responsibility of the support of humanitarian projects and of development in their respective communities or others, and to develop in them the Christian human values of coexistence, justice, responsibility and common work in a familiar climate and of mutual support.
In the same way, the project from its origins had the idea to generate a dynamics multiplying, so that through each one of the youths it was possible to contribute to improve the level of life of their communities passing from just one project to becoming in a network that will benefit the villages of each one of them. With the Houses the youths are motivated to participate in the reality of their town, making conscience that the inequality of which they are victims is not a whim of the destiny, but that they belong to a country of countless resources, but where the wealth is unjustly distributed.
