The best way to address emigration is through a comprehensive community development effort that unleashes the incredible spirit of the Honduran people. World Vision has been able to tap into their faith and spirit, and it's creating opportunity that is stopping emigration and transforming lives.

World Vision is working to create opportunities in Honduras with one hope: to give people a reason to stay. Gennri and Marisol’s love story is a perfect example.
