We want to work alongside communities to support locally driven projects focused on education and to provide further educational opportunities for young people in these communities.
educate. was founded in March 2017 by two young women after they had both spent a year living and working in Honduran communities – Antonia as a teacher and mentor at a children’s home in El Progreso and Lisa as an English teacher at 9 rural public schools in Trinidad, Santa Barbara. We founded educate. as a way to work with the individuals and organisations we had met to create sustainable, community-driven impact for underprivileged Honduran youth in the communities we had lived in and continue to be a part of.
Today, educate. works alongside these and other communities in Honduras. We have a network of dedicated individuals who commit their time on a voluntary basis in support of our mission.
Our team – both across Europe and in Honduras – all work on a 100% voluntary basis, so that all funds raised can go directly towards supporting our projects.
