educate. is a non-governmental non-profit organization that works to empower children and young people in Honduras through education and preventative healthcare.

We aim to act as a catalyst, mediating between local communities and donors to empower children and young people in Honduras through existing institutions and organisations. In doing so, we acknowledge and support the agency of Hondurans, bringing awareness to initiatives run by local people that are creating change on the ground. We use our knowledge and networks in Honduras to facilitate connections with projects that correspond with our mission. 

Each year, in addition to our university scholarship programme, we support three projects that fall on a spectrum from literacy to health.

Our university scholarship programme works in partnership with local public secondary schools to provide an opportunity for excellent but underprivileged students to continue their education to the tertiary level.

We are a registered Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organization (SCIO) with the Scottish Charity Register. Our charity number is SC047277.

What makes us different 1


educate. es una organización no gubernamental y sin fines de lucro que trabaja para empoderar a los niños y jóvenes en Honduras a través de la educación y cuidado preventivo de la salud. 

Nuestro objetivo es actuar como un catalizador, mediando entre comunidades locales y donantes para empoderar a niños y jóvenes en Honduras a través de instituciones y organizaciones existentes. Al hacerlo, reconocemos y apoyamos la capacidad que los hondureños tienen, concienciando a iniciativas de la población local que están generando cambios. Utilizamos nuestro conocimiento y nuestras redes en Honduras para facilitar conexiones con proyectos que se corresponden con nuestra misión.

Cada año, además de nuestro programa de becas universitarias, apoyamos tres proyectos relacionados con temas desde la alfabetización hasta la salud.

Nuestro programa de becas universitarias trabaja en asociación con escuelas secundarias públicas locales para brindar oportunidades a estudiantes excelentes pero desfavorecidos para que puedan continuar su educación hasta el nivel terciario.
