ADETRIUNF, founded and legally constituted in 2005, is a nongovernmental organization with 66 member-communities, 42 of which pay dues and vote in ADETRIUNF’s general assembly. ADETRIUNF’s mission is to advance development in member communities.
To train young people in 10 communities in the drought-stricken region of Choluteca to develop environmentally responsible microenterprises.
ADETRIUNF will offer training and financial support toward the development of microenterprises by 150 young people in 10 communities in and around the municipality of El Triunfo, department of Choluteca. Another 3,000 Hondurans will benefit indirectly.
Rationale for funding:
This project is consistent with the focus on the inclusion of young people and on rural development in the IAF’s Honduras portfolio. This area of Honduras suffers though periodic cycles of drought and floods. It is a frequent target of disaster relief that consumes governmental and nongovernmental resources. Both governmental and nongovernmental organizations are consumed by managing disaster relief which leaves no resources to dedicate to young people.
This project should show the elements necessary to create an environment conducive to the development of youth-led businesses.
