Robert Hahn is an experienced CEO with a demonstrated history of working in the non-profit industry. He is the CEO and founder of the Central American Training Foundation (CATF) which seeks to empower the people of Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador to better prepare their region for emergencies and natural disasters through the creation of the Central American Training Center (CATC). The Center will be a 49,000 square foot complex comprised of training rooms, a large auditorium, simulations rooms, classrooms and a state-of-the-art “Situation Room”. The campus will include at least five acres of actual emergency simulation elements, and the property is 6 miles from the Palmerola International Airport in Comayagua. Palmerola Airport will act as the gateway hub for all of South and Central America. Currently no centralized training facility exists nor there is a region-controlled facility which trains, equips and stands ready to respond to any crisis on its own. Central America is now overly-dependent on the resources of countries from outside the region. While international cooperation and assistance will always remain important, the current situation leaves the area too reliant upon the resources, budgets and goodwill of outside governments. As the global economy staggers back from impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic, and more countries focus their efforts inward, Central America has never been more at risk.
Robert is also the chairman of Honduras Compassion Partners Inc (HCP), along with the leadership team, he works with the gov't of the city of La Paz to improve municipal infrastructure such as the Women's Empowerment and Entrepreneurship, revitalizing the city-wide water system, up-grading medical facilities, firefighter training and equipping, and outfitting the school system. HPC also has a strong grassroots arm which has sent over 2,000 people on short term missions to Honduras, including medical teams. Further, he is the Senior Pastor at Chesapeake Church as well as the director of End Hunger In Calvert County Inc., a network of more than 150 partner churches, food pantries, businesses and other non-profits who are committed to feeding the hungry. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization is Chesapeake’s major outreach ministry in our local community.
