RANCHO EL PARAISO
For nearly 25 years, HOI has worked to address the spiritual and physical needs of the residents of the Agalta Valley in Central Honduras. To do so, we arrange for groups of mission trip volunteers from the United States to travel to Rancho el Paraiso, our 1,400-acre working ranch, for 1-2 weeks throughout the year. From that base, North Americans work side-by-side with Hondurans from nearby villages on community projects that can range from making home improvements to helping establish schools and medical clinics. Through this model, HOI utilizes short-term mission teams to make a long-term impact.
Our 60 local Honduran staff members work year-round with communities in the areas of healthcare, agriculture, education, faith building, and commerce. Through the combination of short-term and long-term ministries, HOI seeks to improve the quality of life, increase opportunity, and live out the Gospel with the people of the Agalta Valley.
