THE STORY:

I need your support! In less than three weeks I’m running the Marine Corp Marathon as a way to raise awareness and money for OYE Honduras, an internationally acclaimed NGO working with at-risk youth in El Progresso, Honduras.

Many of you know that I’ve been involved with OYE for over a decade and have served on its Board of Directors for the past several years. OYE, founded in 2005, provides at-risk youth with merit-based high school and university scholarships, and uses arts, sports and community engagement initiatives to develop their leadership skills.

To learn more about OYE and their transformative work with promising, but disadvantaged, youth in El Progreso, visit their website (www.oyehonduras.org) or follow them on Facebook (www.facebook.com/oyehonduras).

OYE is a registered 501c3 and your contribution is tax deductible.

Thanks for your support!

Sam

------------------------------------------------------

If you don’t have time to visit the OYE website, take a moment to read the inspiring story of Dunia Perdomo and how OYE has shaped her life.

Dunia, our current Programs Coordinator, was one of OYE’s first five scholarship recipients in 2005. When she was only 12 years old, she lost both of her parents to AIDS. Living out her remaining adolescent years in Copprome, a home for orphaned children in El Progreso, she has little hope of continuing her education upon graduating from high school. Through OYE´s support and working part-time to cover her living expenses, Dunia graduated from university in 2010 with a degree in Industrial Engineering. After a few years of employment elsewhere, she returned to El Progreso and to OYE as our Programs Coordinator. Last year, she was selected by the Seattle International Foundation’s Central America and Mexico Youth Fund, as one of five Central American youth leaders, to carry out a sexual and reproductive health education project to promote healthy lifestyles and gender equity among at-risk youth populations in El Progreso.

 

Thanks for your support!
