A Brief History

Un Mundo has evolved from the spontaneous efforts of friends and visitors interacting with local residents in 1995 into a nonprofit organization whose projects and programs are developed and implemented by a team of dedicated volunteers and involved community members.
Since founding the organization, we have focused on the Honduran north coast community of El Pital largely made up of peoples who have had little if any institutional contact, are often pre-literate, and are predominantly subsistence agriculturists.
