educate. is a grassroots non-profit organisation that works to empower children and young people in Honduras through supporting community-driven initiatives focused on education.

We aim to break down the unequal power relations inherent to so much non-profit work by flipping the concept of “aid” on its head: instead of going to Honduras with programmes we want to implement, communities and organisations in Honduras reach out with their own ideas and act as the core leaders in driving projects to fruition. We believe in the power and agency of local community members, and that these individuals know best how to implement impactful projects in their communities.

oUR WORK

scholarship pROGRAMME

We work in partnership with local public secondary schools to provide opportunities for high-potential students from low-income backgrounds to continue their education beyond secondary school. Currently, we are supporting 3 students at university, all of whom are the first in their families to study pursue a university degree.

Local Leadership

We work alongside resource-poor communities to support locally-led projects, championing local leaders and communities in tackling the issues that most affect them.

Community libraries

Together with local communities, we start school-based community libraries that fundamentally transform learning environments for students in rural or otherwise marginalised areas. So far, we have supported the opening of 6 libraries.

Success! You're on the list.

“We envision a future where there are abundant opportunities for Honduran communities to come together, unimpeded, to learn, lead and grow”.
