Experts agree that the education and training of women in poor countries reduces poverty, stabilizes communities, and improves human rights. Your financial gift will help educate women as ethical leaders and to become change agents in their communities. We invite you to be a part of this change through your partnership in one of many different ways.

Microloan Program At LMI students can study entrepreneurship, however, the sad reality is that women have a harder time securing business loans than their male counterparts. For this reason, LMI created a microloan program for graduates who present a viable business plan to our organization. Learn More
Campus Sustainability One of our long-term goals is for our campus to be completely self-sustaining. Our students learn important sustainability principles through participating in extracurricular projects while living on campus, and many have implemented these practices in their own homes and communities across Honduras.

Continued Studies LMI provides a nationally recognized English, leadership, and community development certificate to each student who completes our two-year program. Many students, after graduating from LMI, decide to continue their education at a University level. Although university is free in Honduras, the women need assistance with rent and food while earning their degree. Learn More External Link
