Challenge

More than 40% of the Honduran population is younger than 18 and most of them end up as unschooled laborers as a result of a poor education, or none at all. Many youngsters are forced to leave school because their families cannot afford school materials and uniforms, or because they are needed to help with the family's income. Many young people are forced to migrate or turn to youth gangs because of lack of labor opportunities.

Solution

This scholarship program will see 120 children of AMPRO members through high school graduation and provide training sessions on entrepreneurship. The children will then strengthen their communities from the inside out.

Long-Term Impact

With the awarding of scholarships AMPRO is contributing to the education of young professionals who will be able to take a competitive position in the labor market and create local business initiatives, generating local work opportunities.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
