“Why should I study?” is the name of our monthly workshop that we present in a different place each month. In Honduras, many young people do not have the desire to study and do not recognize the importance of education to move forward to get out of poverty. With our program, we can work toward changing the mentality of many youth so that they can become exemplary citizens in society.
Our presentation will speak to the youth from different homes and places of extreme poverty which include the following:
At each workshop, we will select a person to give their testimony as to how he/she has overcome the obstacles of life to move forward and study.
One of our speakers will talk about the benefits of education and the personal impact it has had on their life.
We will deliver an aptitude test to participating youth, which will help us to determine a person’s ability in a particular skill or field of knowledge.
At the end of each presentation we will talk about the opportunity to have a scholarship with our program which includes covering educational expenses to study as well as transportation.
