About Project 541
Project 541 is an organization committed to supporting and empowering children in La Moskitia, Honduras, a remote region where resources are limited. Established in 2013 by our Executive Director, Kayla Austin, Project 541 began operating programs in May 2014. Kayla graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Nonprofit Management in April 2014, and now resides in Tegucigalpa directing the residential program. As we continue our organizational presence in Honduras, our goal is to establish a reputation in Honduras for helping children reach their highest potential. Every child deserves to be safe, fed, educated and loved. Our residents' physical and emotional well being is our top priority.
