The Marcovia Project was founded in 2021 by Anthony & Emily Hemmert.
Emily served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Honduras and saw the need for increased access to education and business capital.
Emily volunteers as the Director of the Board of Directors.
Our project operates in Marcovia, Honduras including the communities of El Guapinol, Monjaras, and Buena Vista. These communities are home to some of the poorest people in the world.
We provide small business loans to individuals to start and grow businesses.
Children often cannot afford to attend school due to a national requirement to wear a school uniform.
Sponsoring a child, which provides them with their school uniform and supplies, is an easy way to change the life of a child.
