Challenge

Honduras is one of the most impoverished and unequal countries in Latin America, with over 60% of her population living in poverty. The majority of young people in Honduras do not complete secondary education, let alone receive a relevant and quality education that prepares them for future success in Honduras. Without opportunities to study or work, young people are at risk of poverty, social exclusion, early pregnancy and violence.

Solution

OYE provides scholarships to promising students to continue their secondary and university education and creates spaces to build their leadership, life skills and social support networks through youth-led workshops and programs in the arts, communications, graphic design and sports. In the context of a deepening political and social crisis, OYE provides young people with opportunity and hope for a better tomorrow.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate, empower and engage over 200 Honduran youth lead positive change in their lives, schools and communities. We believe that empowered and engaged young people are key to equitable and sustainable development in Honduras.
