Education for young people is top-most priority
Honduras is the second-poorest country in Central America and is characterized by large inequities in the distribution of income and wealth. Not everyone in Honduras yet benefits to the same extent from the economic upswing: social conditions are still difficult, particularly in rural areas, and people can rarely find paid work. Nearly two thirds of the more than eight million people in the country live below the poverty line of USD 1 per day. KfW Development Bank is supporting the country in developing its education system and with environmental protection.
