Honduras is one of the poorest countries in Latin America and one of the most violent in the world, plagued by corruption, inequality (the highest in all of Latin America), human rights abuses and pervasive gang violence.


educate. is a small non-governmental non-profit organization that works to empower children and youth in Honduras through education and preventative healthcare. We work in El Progreso, Yoro; Trinidad, Santa Barbara and Talanga, Francisco Morazan.


We believe in responsible development. Run by individuals across Europe who have lived and worked in Honduras for many years, we work to foster connections with local communities and to work beneath local leaders and organisations towards our mission of empowering Honduran children and youth. We acknowledge and support the agency of Hondurans, bringing awareness to initiatives run by local people that are creating change on the ground.


We are looking for a semi-professional photographer/filmmaker to accompany our small team in Honduras in July/August 2019 as we visit some of our projects in Honduras to capture the work that is taking place on the ground. We are in need of documentary-style photographs and 1-2 short documentary-style case study videos (2-4 minutes) that capture the humanity and rawness of subjects without fetishising the themes of violence and poverty that are so often focused upon in non-profit media. You will need your own camera equipment.


As we are such a small organisation, we unfortunately can’t provide financial compensation for this work. All of our team members work on a 100% voluntary basis and cover our own travel expenses. This ensures that close to 100% of our funds reach our projects on the ground directly. Of course, you would receive full credit for all of your work. Working alongside the educate. team will give you great insight into the organisation and you would get to experience Honduras in an incredibly raw, grassroots manner.


We look forward to hearing from you!
