OYE is a youth-led development NGO based in El Progreso, Honduras. Honduras is a country where violence, corruption and insecurity are endemic and poverty widespread. Youth are those most affected by this environment. Through academic scholarships, leadership and life skills workshops and youth development programs in the arts, media and sports, OYE provides opportunities for promising disadvantaged youth to break the cycle of poverty and develop into young leaders who inspire positive change in their homes, schools and communities.


Our mission is to educate, empower and engage disadvantaged youth to break the cycle of poverty and become agents of change in their homes, schools and communities. We envision a society where  youth are key actors in the positive development of Honduras.
