Join AJS in praying for justice in Honduras this month.

When Nelsy’s not working or studying community development in college, she leads one of APJ’s regional youth chapters. Nelsy’s journey toward justice is an example of how AJS can inspire people to recognize opportunities for change in their community – and take action.

In 1998, AJS-Honduras was founded by a group of Honduran and North American friends (including Kurt Ver Beek and Jo Van Engen) dedicated to doing justice in Honduras. We're excited to share a throwback to the 1990s, when we worked  with the Garifuna community of Ruguma to protect their lands from theft. 

AJS is featured as a "Change-maker" on television stations across the United States!

Building Hope, Growing Justice

For over 20 years, AJS has worked to reduce violence and make systems stronger in Honduras. Now we're looking forward to the next step of our story - a secure, modest home for justice that will be a symbol of our hope that through our prayers, our dreams, and our work, we can bring about a more just society here in Honduras.

Join us in thanking God for answered prayers!

AJS began training community auditors in 2016, and thanks to the tireless work of volunteers like Keybi, have already seen measurable change in the public schools and health centers where they work.
