Every sin­gle youth in our pro­gram has a unique and mov­ing per­son­al sto­ry to tell. A sto­ry about dreams, chal­lenges, hopes, suf­fer­ings, and vic­to­ries! Here we would like to share with you a few of these tes­ti­monies.

 

Mercy

If I in the fu­ture have the re­sources and I see the wish in youths leav­ing their or­phan­ages to move for­ward, I would very much like to help. I love to help oth­ers and most of all when they have ex­pe­ri­enced the same as me.”

Mer­cy has been a part of Youth for Hon­duras since the be­gin­ning. She is an in­cred­i­ble hard­work­ing young woman with a pas­sion for a bet­ter fu­ture for her­self and oth­ers. As a mat­ter of fact, it only took Mer­cy three months with Youth for Hon­duras to find a job. When it comes to hous­ing, Mer­cy also has a beau­ti­ful sto­ry to tell as she is rent­ing an apart­ment where four oth­er young women from or­phan­ages also live.

 

 

Ernesto

The or­ga­ni­za­tion helps a lot — but in the end you are the one to take de­ci­sions for your own life!”

Ernesto is very ded­i­cat­ed to his his­to­ry stud­ies at the uni­ver­si­ty. This is not a ca­reer many Hon­duran youths chose and, there­fore, it is dif­fi­cult to put to­geth­er a full-time sched­ule. But Ernesto is hope­ful and dreams of shar­ing his knowl­edge with the Hon­duran so­ci­ety so that fel­low cit­i­zens will learn more about their cul­tur­al roots. Be­fore his time in Youth for Hon­duras, Ernesto both worked as a fire­fight­er and at a re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion home for for­mer drug ad­dicts and youths with so­cial prob­lems. The lat­ter, how­ev­er, as one of those youth who had to learn a bet­ter way in life.
