On the first forum, in El Salvador, Carlos had the opportunity to meet with Maricela and Alexis from our magic club, and they got a change to perform in the forum in front of more than 200 of their peers.

We got a lot of coverage in local news.

We are very glad to see how this kids can be in empowering positions through their study of magic.

  1. Hello,
    I am a volunteer with an organization called Honduras Hope that has been involved in Honduras for 15 years. I We work with indigenous communities in Yoro, Honduras. I have heard and read about Magicians without Borders and I would like to know how it works. How do you decide where to go? I saw that you were in Honduras last July…….how can we become a part of your next visit to Honduras? I go to Honduras 4 times a year….my next visit will be in November. How can I learn more about your Central American program?

      Thank you for reaching out Kathy!

      We would love to extend our program to Honduras. Last July we went there part of a conjunct effort with USAID and Glasswing International, we would like to see if there is a way we could all collaborate again to go and do some performances while we are there. As of now we have no plans to go back to Honduras, but are open to see what can work out.
