Honduras has a severely young population, with many entering the workforce before completing their primary education. The majority of the country's crime and poverty issues stem from the fact that the population is extremely young and uneducated. 

 

We believe this make-up creates a high-impact zone, where modest, targeted support can produce enormous change.

The Facts About Education in Honduras

DSC05551.jpg

In Honduras, the rural villages are the most vulnerable populations. In these areas, it is most common for youth to work in the fields picking coffee or farming. 

A job in agriculture normally pays $4-$6/day, while the majority of bilingual high schools in Honduras charge a fee of $250-$350/month. This gap creates a crippling cycle of poverty for many families. Trapped by these low wages, parents are unable to afford their children's education, limiting future career opportunities and perpetuating the cycle.

The majority of Honduran communities lack the infrastructure necessary to meet student needs on their own. Schools are left to fend for themselves without the support of government aid or initiatives, and ultimately, the student suffers.

 

This often means that schools have no electricity or running water. Most schools have 1 teacher for every 50 kids. Kids are required to buy their own books, uniforms, and school supplies. For many families, this makes education impossible.
