Seattle International Foundation Awards OYE with $25,000
The Seattle International Foundation has just approved a grant of $25,000.00 to the Organization for Youth Empowerment (OYE)! Specifically, $20,000 has been allocated to support OYE's work promoting education, youth leadership and youth community action in El Progreso, Honduras. In addition, $5,000 will go to support OYE’s coordination and leadership to convene Seattle International Foundation partners working on youth leadership for a retreat to share best practices and build alliances. This means that OYE will serve as the home base for a powerful conference on youth empowerment involving youth actors from across Central America. OYE extends its warmest gratitude to everyone at Seattle International Foundation, and we accept the honor of hosting the Central American youth retreat with enthusiasm and graciousness. Thank you again for your support, and we look forward to working together this year.
