Challenge

In the "zonas cafetaleras" (coffee zones) of Trinidad, Santa Barbara, most schools only go up to 6th grade. After primary school, the majority of students from these communities start to work. According to the World Bank, only 43% of students in Honduras finish 9th grade, let alone their "bachillerato" (12th grade) diploma. In rural areas like the ones where we work, this percentage is even lower.

Solution

The greatest barrier impeding students from the mountain villages in accessing high school is distance: the high schools in Trinidad center are too far away to walk to from the surrounding villages, and transport is too expensive. By hiring a minibus, our team collects and drops off students each day. We also provide uniforms and school materials. We kickstarted this programme in 2022 with a first 10 students, and we hope to grow this number year by year.

Long-Term Impact

Our scholars also act as community leaders and role models. Each Saturday, they gather at the educate. Youth Center for workshops and community engagement activities focused on arts, literacy, leadership and environmental protection. Ultimately, the programme is creating a community of young people who are engaged in driving long-lasting change in their communities.
