The Conference on Honduras 2009 took place in Copan Ruinas during September 24-26, 2008 at the Municipal Conference Center beside the town's central plaza.  If you would like to receive information about next year's conference,

The focus of the Conference on Honduras 2009 was education, healthcare, and community building. The aim was to present and exchange information on current and proposed grassroots volunteer projects to help the people of Honduras.

"We want to figure out how to improve and expand these projects, as well as encourage people to go out and create new projects," said the director of the conference, Marco Caceres. The program consisted of 6-8 panels, made up of 3-6 speakers each.

The Conference on Honduras series is the third part of projecthonduras.com's three-step strategic plan to build an Internet-based model of development for Honduras. During the past six years, the volunteer group has created an online portal at www.projecthonduras.com which serves as a clearinghouse of information on Honduras and has established a growing international network of people communicating via listserv forums on ways to help the country.

 "We have more than 6,000 individuals in our WorldwideMarco Caceres with future Honduran leaders. Honduras Network, and it's incredible to see the impact many of these private citizens are quietly making on Honduras," said Caceres. "What we are trying to do with the conference is simply give people the chance to meet face-to-face, exchange business cards and information, and perhaps discover ways to complement each other's efforts."

The concept behind projecthonduras.com and the Conference on Honduras is based on the belief that developing countries like Honduras need to tap all of their "human capital"; around the world in order to break their cycles of poverty and find ways to implement solutions to persistent problems. The Internet now provides the ability to quickly and cost-effectively organize masses of people and channel their experience, talents, and expertise into specific areas of need in a country.

The conference will be presented by projecthonduras.com and sponsored by Special Missions Foundation, Inc.
