Los Pinos


Los Pinos (The Pines) is a squatter's town on the outskirts of the capital city of Tegucigalpa. It was created by the unfulfilled dreams of thousands who migrated to the city hoping for a better way of life, only to find that the city could be just as unforgiving and desolate as the rural wilderness they had hoped to escape. Unemployment, lack of basic services, malnutrition, and overpopulation combine to foster a difficult environment in which to raise children. Domestic and gang violence along with substance and sexual abuse are destroying the fragile family unit and fueling the dangerous immigration march to the north.

Honduras


About the same size as Tennessee, Honduras is a diverse country of nine million people located in Central America. Drastic unemployment and hopelessness fuel violent gang activity all over the country. Seeking a better future, tens of thousands leave in search of a better life.
