Construction of the Image Institute

The project started by the Dutch NGO Libre Expresión is focused on starting an institute called Instituto de la Imagen (The Image Institute). This institute will offer additional education for youth between 20 and 25 from slum areas in Honduras.

Some of the programmes will be:

· A one year leadership course for 30 motivated youth from slum areas in Honduras.

· Courses for 210 youth focused on computer skills, English and entrepreneurship

All these courses will be offered for free.

The institute will also contain a study centre and library which will be used by approximately 1200 youth from the lowest social and economical class. This will be a place where they can meet, do homework and participate in different events.

The centre will also start a big awareness program to prevent HIV and AIDS.
