In Honduras – a country of extreme income inequality – over 66% of people live in poverty (World Bank, 2016). We know that education is a powerful tool to lift people out of poverty. But for youth with difficult home lives, the barriers to obtaining a good education can seem impossible to overcome.
Our own director, Enrique, had to overcome tremendous obstacles to complete his education. He was able to improve his own life – and is now able to help others – simply because caring people came into his life at the right times and supported him.
With your help, we want to be that caring and supportive presence for youth who really need it. We want to provide youth with:
- A safe place to stay whenever they need it
- Ongoing support in their education
- A stable, loving presence in their lives
In short, we want to give them all the support they need to reach their full potential.
