Challenge

Although a good education is very important in Honduras, the vast majority of children leave school after the 6th grade with a low level of knowledge and no prospects for further schooling or vocational training.

Solution

The vocational preparation in the "Talleres" (span. for workshops) enables disadvantaged young people to gain practical experience in trades in a 3-year program. The choice of seven different trades - from cosmetics to welding - helps the young people to develop their individual potential under professional guidance from certified teachers. The program ends with a nationally recognized examination. This is an important prerequisite for further qualification as a trained specialist.

Long-Term Impact

All participants attend the neighboring secondary school at the same time. This thorough training of the young people improves the supply of skilled workers in the long term and thus promotes the development of the local economy. The workshops are located in the community of La Venta, about an hour's drive from the capital Tegucigalpa. The local community benefits in the medium to long term from more skilled workers and less emigration.
