The Celtino Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, non-denominational organization that collaborates with American and Central American leaders and organizations to promote primary and secondary education in rural Latin American districts. Presently, Celtino is focusing its efforts in the Copan region of Honduras where there is a large rural indigenous population. In addition to building primary schools, providing supplies, and giving high school scholarships, the vision for Celtino has broadened. Plans are being made to build a library and education center in Villanueva, Copan. An annual two week summer health clinic to be set up in existing Celtino schools has drawn interest and support from two American hospitals. Additionally, three more schools are slated to be built in the Choluteca and Copan regions. In the future, Celtino hopes to increase its scholarship recipients.
