In 2016 Connect Global partnered with the Community Water District in El Tamarindo to support a plan to give water to the residents of this remote and very water insecure town. In August of 2018, Connect Global helped complete the third phase of this current plan to bring water to 2 communities near the original well that was dug. In August 2019 we plan to complete another clean water project in this area. Thank You for your support.
Access to Water around the world is a problem
Connect Global shares the message of Jesus through collaborative and sustainable solutions to needs around the world. One of the ways we complete this is through clean water projects. We decided to partner with the community run, Water Management District, in Valle, Honduras to come up with a sustainable solution for not only the well but a supply chain to provide water directly to each resident in a sustainable way.
Connect Global has chosen to be a part of the solution
We also hosted a team in Altos De Estiquirin in August 2018 to do work on an existing well and make connections so that each of their residents will have access to clean water.
Our Next Water Project will be in San Lorenzo in late summer of 2019. You can come with us and help bring clean water to a community in Need!
How You can Help provide clean water to this town in Honduras
We are raising $5000 to complete this project and we need your help. Whether you can give $5 or $50 every penny counts. You can literally save lives by helping us. Clean Water can equal improvements in education, income and overall health.
In addition to clean water, our team has been able to help a local school get a kick-start to the new school year, and we also poured several new Concrete floors which will help several families by keeping the elements out of their homes.
The Connect Global Team operates under the mandate found in Matthew 28:19, "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations ". Our purpose is To share the Good News of Jesus around the world and help others do the same. One of the ways we are accomplishing this is by partnering with Pastors around the world who do the work of making disciples in some of the farthest, and most unreached areas in the world.
The Connect Global Team is very excited about the progress of the Maternity Home Ministry as well as the building and construction efforts which are scheduled to be complete in May 2019.
Together we have been able to work towards the completion of a Maternity Home in La Ceiba, Honduras. Thank You!
This home is nearly complete and we could not be more excited to begin our ministry efforts inside the newly built, 24 bed facility. The Connect Global staff had an opportunity to finalize the contract which will allow us to begin forming the operations staff for the Maternity Home. We are so grateful for everyone who has donated and been a part of this journey.
Thank you for all of your prayer and your support!

Connect Global Maternity Home Ministry Update
Thank You for Your Support
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 teams have provided several rounds of gear donations, a 2-day training for members of the local police department, and we have also engaged with the Fire Departments of La Ceiba, and El Porvenir to provide fire suits and other job related support.
Connect Global mission team visit to El Porvenir
There are many ways that Connect Global has chosen to impact communities in Honduras. We often will find smaller sub communities to work with and one of those communities is the Elders Home in El Porvenir. Last year we visited and delivered prescription glasses as well as other items that were requested to help them create handmade gifts and crafts which they then sell to supplement their income.
This home provides a safe a secure place for some of El Porvenir’s most vulnerable citizens to engage with others, make crafts, and be fed. Our relationship with the Director, Olivia, has been able to help us know what is needed and what will be a blessing to the men and women who benefit from this home. It is our desire to help in any way possible and to help find sustainable ways to supplement the work Olivia is doing.
In addition to prescription glasses and knitting materials we have also provided a fully functional aquaponic food system. This is a blessing to the home’s already functioning chicken coops and in ground gardens. Aquaponics is a way for the home to provide some extra proteins and leafy veggies to an already vulnerable group of people and help ensure a nutritious diet.
Improving someone’s quality of life is easier to achieve than you may think.
We are grateful for you and for all the supporters we have been so fortunate to have been backed by over the years. We are always on the look out for more ways to support and help these communities and we will continue to share with you the success of those outreaches and how you can get plugged in.
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.
