How to be Green – Sustainable Development at Hacienda la Esperanza B & B
Hacienda la Esperanza’s sole purpose for doing business is to support the indigenous Mayan Indians of the Copan valley in Honduras, Central America.
Hacienda la Esperanza gives 100% of its income to support programs for the poor through Paramedics for Children, school supply programs, and the on-site health clinic called Clinica la Esperanza. The bed and breakfast, as well as the clinic, are run by Rodger and Pam Harrison, founders of Paramedics For Children.
Presently the Clinic La Esperanza treats up to 600 patients per month through a subsidy program started by Paramedics For Children in 2006. The program works by giving local doctors access to the clinic for free, and then paying a subsidy for each hour that they are open. The clinic is open seven days per week and the fee for a consultation and medicine is very low due in large part to the income derived from the bed and breakfast, as well as regular donations from the US and Canada. Presently the consultation fee is only 50 lempiras ($2.64 USD), which often includes medicine for free. This rate is about 20% of what the normal consultation fees run in the town.
Hacienda la Esperanza doesn’t let its charitable purpose get in the way of hospitality for its guests.
