Honduras Project

The Honduras Project is a student-led short term missions project that each year raises funds for a gravity-fed water system in a rural village in the mountains of Honduras. Each year since 1982, a team of students has gone down to Honduras for a week of labor, ministry, and cross-cultural sharing.

Growers First Wheaton

The students of Growers First Wheaton seek to create a student movement around coffee, raising awareness about the coffee trade through creative and engaging means, emphasizing entrepreneurship, ethical consumption, and cross-disciplinary experiences. Started in the Fall of 2010 in partnership with Growers First - an organization that combines good coffee, entrepreneurship, and development work and has several Wheaton alumni on its Board of Directors - a team of students traveled to Honduras to blog and create a documentary about the coffee process, following their coffee from "crop to cup."

Haiti-Wheaton Partnership

The Haiti-Wheaton Partnership was formed in response to the devastating earthquake that struck Haiti in January of 2010. A team of students raised funds and traveled to Haiti in the Spring of 2011 to explore the possibilities of Wheaton involvement with in-country organizations and ministries. The partnership hopes to continue as the connections made bear fruit and more students become involved with recovery and development work in Haiti.
