Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs

Paragraph 1, page 49

One major achievement is the number of hectares of restored forest, which increased by 53,623 hectares in 2019 thanks to institutional efforts with strategic partnerships, local governments, private enterprise, academies and schools, volunteers, and with the support of national and international organizations. According to the Forest Conservation Institute (ICF), the Honduran Forest Restoration Strategy 2030 aims to restore 1 million hectares, as a government commitment and through participatory processes. 

Paragraph 2, page 60

The Dry Corridor Alliance Program (ACS-USAID), through its Health and Nutrition component, carries out coordinated interventions with strategic partners (the Health Secretariat (SESAL); decentralized health services managers; NGOs; community health volunteers and others), to support households to improve diet, feeding practices, food preparation and household sanitation. Through community interventions, it also contributes to improved utilization of maternal and child health and nutrition services.

Paragraph 3, page 76

The Ficohsa Foundation’s “Educating Our Future” programme was created in 1998 with the goal of providing, in an integral and sustainable way, pre-primary education for thousands of 3- to 6-year-old children who live in urban-marginal areas. This educational model is participatory and brings together the community, educational authorities, parents, teachers, community volunteers and other actors such as the Foundation’s partners.
