About Us

About Us

Buenos Vecinos is committed to working with teachers, community members and children in mountain villages as well as those in need in Honduran and Guatemalan towns. It is our intention to connect with mutual respect and dignity and combine our work with love and humor as neighbors helping each other.

We are a truly grassroots organization committed to community development. Especially on school building or renovation projects:

  • All materials are sourced locally, providing revenue for local businesses.
  • All work, apart from an occasional paid foreman, is undertaken voluntarily by the village members.
  • Children also participate with painting, decoration, and other building tasks.
