About The Solidarity Project
The Solidarity Project (TSP) is a 501(c)-3 non-profit organization that implements participatory development projects in Honduras. In participatory development models, community members are active participants in the selection, design, and implementation of projects aimed to help their communities. The Solidarity Project believes that community leaders have the contextual knowledge, community buy-in, and ideas to solve local problems but often have limited resources with which to implement these ideas. The Solidarity Project works to create a global community based on solidarity with others, and as such we create bridges across our donors, partners, and participants around the world.
The Solidarity Project supports Honduran leaders who create positive social change for their communities and cultivates partnerships built on trust, equality, and solidarity.
We envision a world where people value their communities, feel empowered with others, and have the tools to transform their realities.
Our work is based on the development of collaborative, intentional, and personal relationships with each other, with communities, and with donors.
We work together in solidarity and collaboration with all stakeholders to develop community-driven solutions.
We are committed to honesty, transparency, and respect in our operations and maintain open communication across all stakeholders.
Chispa means “spark” in Spanish and is often used to describe someone that has a contagious, life-giving energy and passion. At the Solidarity Project, we seek to bring a spirit of “chispa” to our work and strive to partner with organizations that create spaces for all members of the community to come together to not only meet their basic needs but to dream, grow, thrive, and share their creative energy, their “chispa”, with each other.
