This project aims to improve the respect of human rights of women and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons in Honduras. The project focuses on building a better human rights culture by raising awareness about human rights, advocating for respect of human rights and raising the capacity to claim these rights at national, regional and international levels. Project activities include: (1) organizing awareness campaigns for the public on basic concepts of human rights; (2) leading education activities targeted especially to women and the LGBT community; (3) conducting training sessions on human rights for journalists including through debates on key human rights issues; and (4) working with women’s rights and LGBT civil society organizations to raise their capacity to engage with regional and international human rights mechanisms. These activities are conducted with LGBT and women’s rights organisations as critical partners to ensure that community mobilisation efforts achieve transformative change for women and LGBT persons. The project also aims to support the Honduran government in its efforts towards enhancing the effectiveness of the newly established national human rights protection mechanism, especially regarding the protection of women and LGBT human rights defenders.
