WHAT WE STAND FOR

The Opportunity Project exists as a direct response to global inequality and the effects it has on people living in Honduras.

 

By cooperating with impoverished communities, we implement specific initiatives to create new opportunities for its vulnerable families. With access to education, the basis for health and new income opportunities, we aim to equip children, youth and other members of the community with the knowledge, tools and motivation to break the cycle of poverty.

HOW IT CAME ABOUT

The idea of founding this non-profit organisation came about when Julian met the Honduran social-entrepreneur Carlos while doing volunteer work in Central America. With the common goal of creating positive change and the will to meet the serious problems in Honduras with sustainable solutions, they decided to combine their complementary skills and start The Opportunity Project.

 

In cooperation with the other team members from Germany and Honduras, as well as every single donor and supporter, The Opportunity Project is set up to counteract global inequality and the resulting lack of opportunity for people in Central America.
