What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Honduras faces several challenges in the area of education including illiteracy in rural populations, low access to secondary education and teacher apathy. The region of La Mosquitia is one of those remote regions where education challenges are seemingly insurmountable. Reach Out Honduras aims to address education challenges through our middle and high school located in the city of Puerto Lempira in the La Mosquitia region. Reach Out Honduras currently offers a holistic education option for almost 500 economically-challenged students. Additionally, Reach Out Honduras has programs tailored to teen moms and dads, as well as, adults.
