December 2019. Within the framework of the institutional strategy, focused on the social development axis, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) approved a loan for US$80.0 million to the Republic of Honduras for the "Program for the Integral Improvement of Educational Infrastructure and Training in Honduras."

CABEI's financial support promotes progress in improving the infrastructure of public high school, elementary, and pre-school education centers throughout the country, with an emphasis on the areas with the greatest urban and rural poverty, as well as training teachers and students in skills methodology.

Regarding the approved project, the Executive President of CABEI, Dr. Dante Mossi indicated that: "the program will strengthen the education sector by improving the education infrastructure of 105 educational centers, providing equipment for technical education in 294 vocational workshops, 105 computer workshops and 315 natural science laboratories".
In addition, he said, at least 15,285 education teachers will be trained in competency-based teaching methodologies.

The identification of the educational centers to intervene was based on the Social Infrastructure Planning System, administered by the Ministry of Education, prioritizing the buildings with the highest index of precariousness in infrastructure throughout the country, resulting in 105 educational centers in the 18 departments of Honduras.
