About us

Hogar Monte Carmelo is an educational-social project of the Discalced Carmelites Order in Central America that aims to educate vulnerable young women in the municipality of Lepaterique, in Honduras.

This home provides a student's residence for young women from the most remote villages of the municipality. These young girls live in villages more than 3 hours walking from the nearest school. That is why the work provided by the Hogar is essential for these young women.


In addition to the residence service, the young women have a comprehensive educational process that includes: spiritual support, workshops and psychological support, medical care, dental service, workshops on cooking, guitar and English.

We believe that all women can accept
themselves, decide their future and change the world.
