Are you ready for #GivingTuesday on December 2nd?

Our campaign “My #Reason2Stay” seeks to show a different side of Honduras, a country that is home to breathtaking landscapes, a rich culture and a warm and humble people who just want to live life freely and with dignity.

Youth believe in so many reasons to stay in Honduras, yet the desperate reality that many young Hondurans live often drives them to leave their homes and seek opportunity in the US. In light of the unprecedented number of children and youth from Honduras arriving at the US border this year, it is critical to invest in programs that provide opportunities for youth to break the cycle of poverty through education; empower them to find their voice; and encourage them to stay and fight for a better future in Honduras and for Honduras.

Give youth a #Reason2Stay and fight for a better future in Honduras and for Honduras. Your donation matters. Can we count on your support?

Yes, you can!


Our mission is to form socially conscious youth leaders through community action programs to break cycles of poverty. We envision a society where  youth are key actors in the positive development of Honduras.
