We support the disability movement in Honduras

Outside actual war zones, Honduras is one of the most violent countries in the world, and the civil society has very limited experience with organisation.

A challenging task
Honduras is located in Central America with a population of approximately 10 million people.
The country has ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and its optional protocol.

As with many other Latin American countries, Honduras faces tremendous inequality, corruption and crime, and the lack of a tradition for civil society organisation makes it a great challenge to build a strong disability movement, that truly represents people with disabilities.

Since 2006, we have been involved with the work on strengthening Disabled People’s Organisations in Honduras. In connection with this, we co-operate with a range of partners, all of which are national associations of people with disabilities, and umbrella organisations.
The purpose is to strengthen the disability movement organisationally and with the long-term objective that the Honduran disability movement, through advocacy work, can achieve lasting improvements to the living conditions of people with disabilities.

Our partners in Honduras
