Volunteerism is an essential contribution

In Ixbalanque we combine three special items: Spanish language, culture exchange, and volunteer work. Honduras is a country characterized by its incredible natural beauty, white sandy beaches, tropical forests, incredible landscapes and living cultures, but with a high poverty rate. For that reason, Volunteerism is an essential contribution in the communities. Ixbalanque supports the communities in its areas through volunteer work. Our students can practice their Spanish by going out and doing volunteer work with us in the communities. The volunteer work is varied and selected based on the interests of each student.
