The Organization for Youth Empowerment, known as OYE, is an organization based in El Progreso, Honduras, dedicated to educate, empower and engage disadvantaged young people to break cycles of poverty and become agents of change in their homes, schools, and communities. We accomplish this by providing scholarships to disadvantaged young people to complete their secondary and university studies, developing their leadership and life skills, and creating spaces for young people to engage with one another, express themselves, and give back to their communities through the arts, communications, graphic design and sports.
OYE is committed to supporting young people, both girls and boys alike, to reach their full potential; however, we recognize the unique challenges faced by girls and young women in Honduras. Engaging boys and young men alongside girls and young women is key to advancing gender equality and girls’ empowerment.
With your help, we hope to raise $5000 this Giving Tuesday to provide 10 young men with the opportunity to continue their formal education and come together to learn, unlearn and relearn what it means to be a man in today’s world.
We invite you to join our cause by donating to our campaign on or after #GivingTuesday. Every gift, big or small, goes a long way in making the difference in the lives of the young people who walk through our doors each day.
Beyond your gift, we hope you will spread the word about our work with young people in El Progreso, and this campaign, by sharing the link on social media or sending an e-mail to your friends and family!
