What a pleasure for children to leave the streets and violence behind and return to the smell of exercise-books and pens; to leave behind their problems and to find room for getting to know their friends and sharing laughter in the school play-ground!
Humanium has chosen to support a project that helps street children and victims of trafficking to return to school. Thanks to the Casa Alianza organisation in Honduras, many children have been able to have access to an education.
In 2012, more than 1,200 children were living on the streets. These children are easy prey for all kinds of trafficking, and the consequences are many, both physical and psychological. Honduras has to cope with a significant share of its population living below the poverty line. In addition, young people under 20 in Honduras accounted for more than 45% of the population in 2011. This is why it is important to put in place effective ways to combat this phenomenon.
The Casa Alianza organisation makes every effort to allow children to have access to an education. This means that all the administrative formalities and all the necessary school materials are taken care of, with the aim of enabling the children to acquire the necessary knowledge for re-integration into society and giving them every chance of future success.
Through this project, the Casa Alianza organisation in Honduras and Humanium want to help children to return to a life appropriate for their age. A child needs to learn, to grow, and to be in the right environment!
