Youth-led Capacity Building and Art Initiatives

Dear OYE Supporter:

After a month of vacation in January, OYE has begun a new chapter in its effort to keep promising Honduran youth in school despite the nation’s high dropout rates and low education levels. After bidding farewell to several former students who have graduated from school or entered the Honduran work force, OYE has offered 55 scholarships to promising youth, welcoming three new members to the OYE family.

OYE’s programs have undergone a few changes. Arte La Calle, OYE’s public arts initiative, has been busier than ever, already carrying out two large mural projects in El Progreso, one at a school and another at a youth center for former street children. OYE el Ritmo and Revista Jóvenes, the radio program and youth magazine, have merged into a single communications program under the leadership of one youth leader. The COPA OYE sports tournament is hard at work preparing for this year’s soccer and volleyball competitions, which will begin in April. OYE has also formed a youth-led fundraising team that will be carrying out local fundraising activities each month to help support OYE and raise awareness within Honduras.

The situation in Honduras remains uneasy. Widespread poverty and unemployment, along with significant street gang and drug trafficking activity, have resulted in extremely high crime rates. In January 2012, the Peace Corps pulled out all of its volunteers from Honduras due to the country’s security situation. But OYE has stayed put to carry out its mission of empowering educated, informed, and talented youth who are the present and future of Honduras. OYE’s work would not be possible without the generosity of its supporters, and we thank each and every one of you for continuing to keep Honduras’s youth in your minds and hearts.
