Young people in Honduras have limited educational, employment and social options, which contributes to high rates of migration. Asociación de Desarrollo Pespirense (ADEPES) and two other IAF community partners (OYE and ADETRIUNF) work together in this grant to provide small education and technical scholarships, leadership training, and microenterprise development, making it possible for young people to continue their education, to develop job skills and small businesses, and to contribute to the well-being and development of their communities. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to strengthen governance in Honduras. ADEPES’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
