Un Mundo is a nonprofit international development organization with a comprehensive and revolutionary approach to its work. We are a movement whose mission is to promote dignity, community, and self-sufficiency while facilitating access to health care, education, and livable wages in marginalized Honduran communities. Un Mundo works in rural Honduran communities where extreme inequality forces most families to live on the margins of survival. Honduras is one of the poorest countries in the world - 80 percent of its population lives in poverty, with most of the poorest concentrated in rural areas. Since Un Mundo's inception, our energies have been focused in the Cangrejal River Valley, located on the eastern edge of Pico Bonito National Park in Honduras.
All Un Mundo projects and programs are designed to incorporate our immediate, intermediate, and long-term objectives. Our immediate objectives are to facilitate access to health care, education, and livable wages. Our intermediate objectives are to realize a pedagogical exercise promoting unity and critical consciousness. And our long-term and ultimate objectives are to promote dignity, community, and self-sufficiency. While our immediate and intermediate objectives are 'instrumental,' in that they help to advance our long-term objectives by directly addressing the objective and subjective factors of under-development, we also directly promote our long-term objectives by always limiting our active participation to that of merely facilitating our programs and projects.
Un Mundo facilitates projects and programs based on the needs of the community with which we are partnering. Communities are encouraged to select from a group of core programs developed by Un Mundo in addition to designing projects that are unique solutions to their particular needs.10 Un Mundo acts largely as a resource for community projects, providing logistical, technical, and financial support. Any locally originating project is eligible for Un Mundo support as long as it is arrived at in a democratic fashion, conforms to our mission, and its benefits reach the community as a whole and not just one or two families or wealthy members of the community. Our programs vary from carefully crafted workshops to more complex and long-term activities designed to become a lasting part of the communities with whom we partner. All projects and programs are facilitated by an Un Mundo representative and a local project director.
Kenneth Hutz is Un Mundo's founder and Executive Director.
