On January 25, 2020, we will dedicate our new headquarters in Honduras. This building has always been more than an office space for AJS. It 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.
In the offices, meeting rooms, and event spaces looking out over Tegucigalpa, ideas will be born, decisions will be made, and coalitions will be strengthened - we can’t wait to dedicate this space with you!
The dedication will be a combination of public events inviting local actors and key partners, and private events as we take time to dedicate the vision behind this building. In addition, we will celebrate this vision with cultural food, music, and dancing.
About the Building:
Our new office is a modest, but comfortable home for the over 130 staff members of AJS-Honduras, and for the thousands of people we work alongside: victims of violence, observers of corruption, defenders of human rights, government functionaries, community leaders, and children who are learning to choose peace over violence. This building is a place where people of all backgrounds, rich and poor, powerful and marginalized, Honduran and international, can come together around a common vision and work towards a common goal.
This building has been designed by a leading Honduran architect in cooperation with a talented architect from the United States, with an expert in environmental architecture as an advisor. They have designed a green, energy-efficient building that will steward our natural resources. The building will be sourced with local materials, and designed to reflect its local environment. In addition, the building includes security features that will keep the staff and beneficiaries of AJS-Honduras safe. Click here for more details about the building design.
