What does Corazón Catracho mean?
The words Corazón Catracho may be tricky to translate, but the deeper meaning is easy to understand. Corazón is the Spanish word for “heart,” both literally (like the body part) and metaphorically (like when someone says, “You have a kind and generous heart.”) Catracho is a word Hondurans use to describe themselves – If you’ve ever heard of how people from Indiana call themselves “Hoosiers,” you’ll understand the idea.
So Corazón Catracho means Honduran heart or spirit. At Corazón Catracho, we’re proud of our Honduran spirit – we believe in empowering Hondurans to support fellow Hondurans. And, as anyone who has come to visit us can tell you, when you spend enough time here connecting with others in a meaningful way, a piece of Honduras will stay in your heart as well ♥.
Do you care deeply about helping others? Do you want to connect with people from other cultures in an intentional and meaningful way?
Imagine participating in a volunteer trip that has been planned with your specific gifts and talents in mind. Where you get to share the things you’re passionate about and bring moments of joy into the lives of others. Creating memories – and perhaps planting seeds of positive change – in both your life and theirs.
Visitors come and go, but the needs of communities are ongoing. We’re always here, working towards long-term solutions.
Our current long-term projects include:
- Providing struggling youth with a safe place to work and study
- Providing a community with access to clean water
- Meeting day-to-day needs within our community
We’re always looking for partners to help support these vital projects.
