Aquaponics Update from Connect Global

Aquaponics Update from Connect Global

The Connect Global Team has been investing in Aquaponics since our inception. Our First Official Trip as 'Connect Global' to Cusuna, we built 5 aquaponic systems. We have learned a lot since then, and our friend and partner Jorge Amador has built many more and taught several people his skills as well. We plan to build and facilitate an Aquaponic Training Center in Honduras in 2019.

The Importance of a Concrete Floor

The Importance of a Concrete Floor

We believe in providing sustainable and tangible solutions to solvable problems that people face.

Dirt floors are very common in many parts of the world. In Honduras, many homes have very basic walls and a roof, but many of the homes are lacking a very basic, important element— a concrete floor. 

Why are concrete floors so important?

The Connect Global team works hard but we have fun too.

The Connect Global team works hard but we have fun too.

A 2007 World Bank study of a Mexican government program to replace dirt floors with cement found that doing so "significantly improves the health of young children."

Among the study's findings: "A complete substitution of dirt floors by cement floors in a house leads to a 78 percent reduction in parasitic infestations, a 49 percent reduction in diarrhea, an 81 percent reduction in anemia and a 36 to 96 percent improvement in cognitive development."

Beyond this, adults reported "increased satisfaction with ... their quality of life."

Our Connect Global team was able to pour 3 new floors for families in need as well as leave the funds to pour 2 more.  

The main focus of the Connect Global Honduras trip in August 2018 was to complete a water well project. We were also able to complete 3 NEW concrete floors while we were in town. Concrete floors are a huge need and they make an immediate impact. These floors improve the quality of life and may even save lives. These families have plenty to overcome and enough challenges to face that we believe a safe, sanitary floor should not be something they have to worry about. 

If you would like to help us sponsor more concrete floors in Honduras, we invite you to make a tax-deductible donation towards our upcoming trips and projects.

You can help a family in need get a clean, and safe new floor this year! 


Connect Global team members were able to bless several families with a freshly poured concrete floor.

First Responder Training in Honduras was a Success

First Responder Training in Honduras was a Success

In 2015, Connect Global launched an initiative in Honduras we call Connected Community. As a part of our ongoing support and investment into the Community of La Ceiba, Honduras our team will be providing training for the members of the local police department. The department leadership has asked for a specialized training for first responders to be able to learn life-saving techniques in order to mitigate the loss of life in the field.

CONNECT GLOBAL is investing in the local pastors and leaders of the church in La Ceiba. We believe that their destiny is to not only reach their communities but all communities around the world. We are bringing several teachers and pastors who will share their expertise with the local church leaders on our next trip, July 14-22.

Love has no Geographical Boundaries

Little Lambs Refuge in La Masica is a wonderful ministry of Proyecto Alcance founded by David and Dialis Romero. They have cared for and supported girls of all ages in a very poor area of Honduras for 18 years.  Connect Global was introduced to this ministry in 2015 while Danielle, Saige, and myself lived in La Ceiba.
