The Bayan Association

A non-profit organization created in 1987 by two families, the Smiths and the Sabripours, driven by the desire to contribute to social and economic development through the practice of universal spiritual principles.

These two families traveled to one of the most remote areas of Honduras known as “La Moskitia Hondureña”, where two indigenous populations, the Garinagu and the Miskitu, coexist.
