Mi Esperanza means MY HOPE and began in 2002 with a vision to provide life sustaining change in the lives of women in the villages surrounding Tegucigalpa, Honduras. For more than a decade we have elevated women and given them the tools and resources they need to break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. Through Mi Esperanza women are finding a new sense of HOPE, self empowerment and the stability that is needed to gain control of their future. At the heart of MI ESPERANZA lies a desire to see lives changed and we know that elevating women is the fastest way to change the world.
Clinica De Esperanza
Clinica De Esperanza opened in August 2007, the dream of founder Gayle Davidson. Gayle, a Nurse Practitioner from Florida, saw the overwhelming need for basic medical care in Honduras while serving on short term mission trip in 1999. Without negating the value of medical care provided in villages, she understood that access to long term care could change lives in a more powerful way. Through a partnership with IRC and several key individuals, Clinica De Esperanza became a reality in 2007. To date, the clinic has served more than 40,000 patients and served thousands more through mobile clinics in rural areas.
TORCH Missions is an organization that coordinates and facilitates missions with vision opportunities to Honduras, Costa Rica,Haiti, El Salvador, and the United States for youth, college students, and adults.

TORCH Missions teams have built thousands of homes across Central America, primarily in Honduras, in the past 20 years.
The Honduras Project
For nearly a decade, The Honduras Project has been a vital part of the effort to relieve poverty and suffering in Honduras. Through a variety of programs, The Honduras Project has helped facilitate transformational community service involving hundreds of volunteers and dozens of communities in Honduras. Volunteers contribute to health, education and environmental service projects. The Honduras Project seeks to make a difference one person, one family, one community at a time.
The Living Water Project
The Living Water Project is an effort to fund clean and accessible water for people in impoverished areas of the world, thereby also extending to them the love of God. Our clean water projects are often done to supplement the work of established holistic ministries. Through a grant application and selection process, we choose and support a ministry by providing the people they serve with clean water in order to relieve that burden both financially and logistically. This gives them more time and money to extend additional services to their communities.
