Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2015
This description of Katia Gomez's work was prepared when Katia Gomez was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2015.
Katia Gomez’s program Educate2Envision (E2E) is teaching 12 to 18 year olds in the most rural parts of Honduras to fight poverty from within their own communities. In exchange for secondary-school scholarships, E2E brings together the young people to design and implement (with 120 hours of service a year each) a project to transform their own community’s needs. Designing adult nutrition programs, bringing electricity to their villages, and founding and running their community’s first kindergarten, the youth are taking development into their own hands.
