Mission of Educate2Envision International
Educate2Envision International equips rural youth in Latin America with the secondary education, resources, and leadership skills they need to build brighter futures and healthier communities.
This project addresses the key issues preventing girls’ full participation in their rural communities, including a pervasive machismo culture, lack of female role models, and an ill-equipped education system that fails to connect girls to future income-generating opportunities.
Why We Love This Project
Educate2 Envision has garnered international attention for its initiatives to address systemic problems in girls' schooling in the isolated, rural communities of Honduras. This project will improve the agency, schooling and economic independence of adolescent girls by enabling them to fully participate, engage, and be employed in the rural communities where they live.
