Project #280: Computer Literacy for Honduran Women Leaders

Our Partnership with Leadership Mission International

Honduras remains one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, with 25% of the Honduran population living in extreme poverty. Women in Honduras face even greater barriers to rising out of poverty: 2 out of every 10 women are illiterate, and women in rural areas have on average just 6 years of education. Furthermore, Honduras has the fifth highest rate of violence against women of any country in the world.  These gender disparities demonstrate a clear need for support Honduran women to overcome these barriers through quality education and opportunities for leadership.

We’re partnering with Leadership Mission International to empower 30 young Honduran women with the computer literacy skills that they need to create sustainable community change. Through this project, women will receive laptops, resources, and skill-based training in the use of digital products and computer literacy in order to revitalize their communities. Once they have undergone training, the women leaders will organize and run training seminars for young people at a partner organization, Casa de Luz, to learn valuable skills in health and community-related topics. Eventually, women who graduate from Leadership Mission International’s program will go on to start businesses of their own using microfinance loans, pursue further University education, and take on community-based leadership roles in nonprofits, schools, and local governments. Computer literacy enables them to pursue their dreams and goals for sustainable community revitalization throughout Honduras. 

Project Goals:

Girls Will Gain Computer Literacy Skills

Local students who will learn from LMI scholars

Community members who benefit from graduates' businesses and leadership roles

Thank you for making this possible!

Our movement is grassroots, to us that not only means the work on the ground is led by local leaders with the support of the community, but it also means that we raise the funds for our projects through everyday donors just like you. In addition to all the donors that gave $25, $100, or $250 and the campaigners that ran a race or donated their birthday to raise funds, we also want to thank our generous business, school, and faith sponsors who believed in our work and joined the movement.
