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.

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 at secondary and post-secondary level. Most of our students are the first in their families to pursue a high school or university degree.

Youth Center

We are working to open the first Youth Centre in Trinidad, Santa Barbara, where we will provide local youth with educational opportunities and trainings in entrepreneurship, community engagement and global citizenship. The centre will also act as a local public library.

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 8 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”.
