Committed with the Economic Development of the communities, Elcatex Group provided seed capital to 7 small business of Choloma’s Youth Outreach Centers, as a product of an agreement signed with FUNADEH’s Genesis Project in 2020.
The Youth Outreach Centers are a USAID-funded project, located in vulnerable communities, seeking to create safe environments for young people, to keep them away from violence, develop technical and soft skills, build life plans and develop their communities through different methodologies and activities.
Along with the Genesis Project and the Catholic University of Honduras, we contribute with the sustainability of the YOC (Youth Outreach Centers), through 52 hours of training in specific areas for the creation and implementation of small businesses.
Projects of aquaponics, supplies sale, food products and office services, were some of the small businesses that were created from this alliance.
We continue to work with FUNADEH on a plan to keep supporting the strengthening of small businesses, benefiting more than 600 young people who attend the Centers in the Municipality of Choloma.
