Due to the desire to learn English and access high-paying jobs in local industries, bilingual education is in high demand in Honduras. However, the majority of bilingual schools in Honduras are private and therefore only accessible to the elite and financially secure. Opportunities for upward mobility are rare and cycle of crippling poverty continues.
Understanding the importance of equal opportunity, BECA partners with Honduran schools to collaborate and empower educational development efforts from within Central America. We provide partner schools with a whole-school curriculum, ongoing professional development opportunities, and training for new teachers. Training includes pedagogical instruction, classroom management techniques, cultural immersion, and team building.
