Since 2008, Lafayette College's Economic Empowerment and Global Learning Project (EEGLP) has collaborated with several Honduran villages to improve their economies. These include Lagunitas, where students and faculty helped build a 30,000-plant coffee plantation and facilitated a trade agreement between the farmers and the Honduran Coffee Board, and El Convento, where EEGLP members are working with the community to establish cocoa-growing operations. Students and faculty visited residents of El Convento and Lagunitas in January 2012 to assess the progress of the projects.
