Challenge

There are approximately 800,000 adolescents and youth in Honduras who neither work nor study. They are known as the NiNis, young people defined not by their potential but by their lack of opportunities. Beyond being trapped in the generational cycle of poverty, these young people are more vulnerable to risk factors present in their communities, including crime, violence, substance abuse, and initiation of risky sexual behaviors. Among all youth, adolescent girls are the most vulnerable.

Solution

This project will support OYE's girl-centered programming to educate, empower and engage adolescent girls through scholarships to graduate from high school, leadership and life skills development, and friendly spaces to engage with their peers and communities through the arts, communications media, graphic design and sports. Educated and empowered girls are less vulnerable to the risks present in their communities and have the opportunity to lift themselves and their families out of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Empowered women create stronger, more resilient communities and societies. Investing in adolescent girls is the key to ensuring the sustainable development and transformation of Honduras. This project will contribute to the emergence of a new generation of educated and empowered young women who will act as agents of change in their homes, schools, communities and country.
