|Students Helping Honduras at the University of South Carolina
Students Helping Honduras at USC is a chapter of the non-profit, Students Helping Honduras, that was started just in 2007 by a college student. SHH is a small but growing effort to help make Honduras, the second poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, a better place to live by empowering locals to change their communities and their future. SHH is 100% Honduran-run; their focus is on empowerment and providing the resources for locals to change their own communities. Students from across the country travel to Honduras with SHH to work alongside these locals to help build schools in remote villages. Along the way, volunteers develop relationships with the children, work on their Spanish and soccer skills, learn how to salsa dance, experience daily Honduran life by living in a village for the week, play with children in SHH's Children's Homes, and make memories that change one's perspective. USC's chapter of SHH started just in the Spring 2013 semester and since has grown continuously. Our chapter fundraises throughout the year and sends students on trips over winter and spring breaks to help change Honduras.
