Eduardo (12)

from Honduras
Eduardo lives with his father, his grandparents and four siblings in a poor part of the Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa. In the mornings, he battles his way through the dusty, congested streets leading to the nearby school. In the afternoons, the widespread violence means that these streets become too dangerous to use.  Many children and youths leave school prematurely and join violent gangs.

«I want everyone to be aware of child rights and believe in them.»

Eduardo, 12 – Pupil in Tegucigalpa
Thus far, Eduardo has never considered joining one of these gangs. At school, he has learned a lot about human rights, child rights, drugs, violence and gangs as part of a project launched by the Pestalozzi Children’s Foundation. He knows that education and solidarity, not violence, are the solution to his country’s problems.
