A standard plastic garden barrel can be transformed into an easy-to-maintain kitchen garden. Drainage water at the bottom of the barrel is captured and re-used, thereby saving a valuable resource.
Many people in Honduras wash their clothes and dishes in dirty streams and rivers. A wash stand (pila) greatly improves sanitary conditions while making the work a little less onerous.

A sanitary latrine helps prevent the spread of disease, and dramatically improves living conditions.
The two-stall latrine and wash stand combo unit is perfect for a school or community. It can be modified to include a latrine, shower and wash-stand for domestic use.

After a few years of seasonal rains in Honduras, homes need a fresh coat of paint to prevent brick deterioration as well as to maintain an attractive appearance.

Blowing dust makes buildings and homes difficult to keep clean. Dirt and mud can be a real problem in the village, placing residents and the children at risk of infections and diseases. Interlocking brick roads are the perfect solution to combat these issues.
