Challenge

Honduras is one of the most violent countries in the world. Crime, poverty and insecurity are commonplace for many families. The prices for food and even for water are impossible to pay for the majority of the population. For young mothers who are completely on their own, it is therefore particularly difficult to secure the living for their family. Out of necessity, many families send their children to work to help feeding the family.

Solution

The young single mothers of the day-care center "Pasos Pequenitos" come from very poor, partly dangerous neighborhoods. In order to give them the opportunity to care for themselves and their children in the future, there is an urgent need to support them. In the day-care center "Pasos Pequenitos", 20 children between the ages of one and six, are cared for everyday. The center is open daily from 7:30 am to 7 pm, during which time the children are given three freshly prepared meals.

Long-Term Impact

PEN PAPER PEACE stands for education. Symbolically speaking, pen and paper improve the lives of people who live in poverty. We are convinced that education creates perspectives, gives courage and is the prerequisite for a self-responsible future. Socially, education creates the conditions for security, political stability and a fair society. Education creates peace.
