As followers of this page will know, we have spent the past four years working to set up and grow educate.’s work in Honduras, and it has been an incredibly exciting journey.
This month, we have been selected to join the GlobalGiving Accelerator! GlobalGiving is a platform that will give us access to trainings, corporate sponsors and matched funding opportunities. In short, it’s a big opportunity for a grassroots NGO such as ourselves! But to pass the Accelerator, we have just two and a half weeks to raise at least $5,000.
We are raising money to open a Youth Centre that will provide 100+ young leaders with educational opportunities and trainings. Our goal is to bring young people together for global citizenship workshops, community events, and peer-to-peer mentorship and tutoring. In a country deeply affected by political and social crises, we believe in the power of young people to drive long-lasting change in their communities.
There are many ways you can support:
First and foremost, please consider donating what you can! Your support makes our work possible and opens doors to future opportunities. On our campaign page, you can see the power of each donation, and even elect to give monthly.
In a country deeply affected by political and social crises, we believe in the power of young people to drive long-lasting change in their communities, and we hope you will help us make this change possible.
