BENEFITING: ORGANIZATION FOR YOUTH EMPOWERMENT

EVENT DATE: Dec 02, 2014

THE STORY:

My #Reason2Stay is a campaign launched by the Organization for Youth Empowerment (OYE) in celebration of #GivingTuesday to raise funds for the education and empowerment of Honduran youth.

This campaign 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 increasingly important to invest in quality programs that work towards breaking the cycle of poverty through education; empower youth; and encourage them to stay and fight for a better future in Honduras and for Honduras.

OYE is dedicated to the education, empowerment and leadership development of over 70 low-income youth from at-risk communities in El Progreso. Beyond providing access to education through partial academic scholarships, OYE creates a safe space for youth to engage with each other, express themselves, voice their reality and create positive change in their communities.

OYE's work goes beyond the individual. By supporting the education and empowerment of Honduran youth, you are helping families break the cycle of poverty, strengthening communities and transforming Honduras.

Please join us and show your solidarity with Honduran youth by making a contribution to OYE on (or before) December 2nd as we celebrate #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back.
