voices of Honduran youth

From earlier today:

“I arrived to OYE last year. I’m in the art program, where I’ve learned how to draw. I’ve learned to work better with others, to fight for everything – for me and for the organization so the organization can grow. I’m always pushing forward.”

“I define myself as a person who fights for what she wants, who tries to better herself as a person, and who supports others. My family relationships are good. OYE has helped me economically. I might not be in high school now if it weren’t for OYE. We are a family of three sisters, and what we receive in OYE helps us to go to school. Practically, OYE’s the reason why I’m in school, because the money from OYE helps my sisters and me to go to school and buy our books. This is my last year, and there are more expenses. We go to school in the morning every day, and you have to spend money on food and all sorts of things. So OYE has helped us with that. We also receive capacity building, which motivates us and helps build our self-esteem.”
