Coffee farmers are among the poorest people in the world. While they may not cross our minds as we drink our morning cup of coffee, the reality is that over 60% of the world‘s coffee is grown by 12.5 million smallholder coffee farmers in developing nations. Most struggle to support themselves and their families, earning less than $1.50 per day, and are trapped in extreme poverty and vulnerable situations.
Breaking out of poverty seems nearly impossible, but there is a way out.
TerraMica provides families and their communities with our training, resources, and the support they need to thrive and create a sustainable future. When families establish safe and healthy homes, their dignity is enhanced and they have better opportunities and outcomes.
Through our locally–led training and education programs, My Healthy Home, and My Healthy Community, we help families cultivate stable relationships, practices, and safer homes. Facilitated by our local staff, our programs combine education and construction to accomplish improved economic development, spiritual growth, and environmental sustainability.
Through our auditors, we verify the impact of our work, measuring improved health indicators, home appearance and functionality, healthier family relations, attitudes, and development.
TerraMica has worked in Honduras since 2015, focusing on the under–reached region of Intibuca and the Lenca people.
With our innovative approach and strong leadership, we work closely with local authorities to implement the My Healthy Home program in Intibuca and other coffee regions of Honduras. This enables us to deepen our connection with local families and assess their needs while providing valuable leadership to the humanitarian community.
TerraMica has begun the foundational work to launch our My Healthy Home program in five communities of the small island country of Sao Tome e Principe off the coast of western Africa.
We are in the early stages of expansion into Southern Mexico and further expansion into the Northern Triangle (Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras). Our long–term expansion plans include a number of additional countries in coffee growing regions globally.Learn More
