ProblemIn Honduras, only 50% of students carry on past 6th grade and young people are disproportionately affected by the country’s debilitating poverty, overwhelming violence and systematic inequality. The unequal power relationships and top-down models of the non-profit sector are failing to create opportunities where they are needed most.
SolutionWe have designed a community impact strategy that combines a tertiary education scholarship programme for high-potential youth with support for school-based community projects. Through these projects, we support rural youth all through their educational trajectories and fundamentally transform educational opportunities and environments in these communities.
With a community-driven development approach that puts local leadership at the forefront, we maximise the potential for long-term impact and self-sustainability.
