“Everyday Life is Fear”: Violence Against Children and Youth in Honduras

Published   on November 26, 2019

Background: In August 2019, Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) traveled to the Honduran cities of El Progreso, San Pedro Sula, and Tegucigalpa to learn more about the violence affecting children and youth.[1]  KIND met with over 80 individuals including youth, families, teachers and representatives of non-governmental organizations living and working in areas affected by violence to hear about their first hand experiences and perspectives on the forms of violence affecting children and youth. This report outlines our principal findings and recommendations for the U.S. and Honduran governments.

 

We would like to thank Casa Alianza Honduras, ERIC/Radio Progreso, Comisión de Acción Social Menonita (CASM), and Association for a More Just Society Honduras for their assistance in coordinating this fact-finding trip and the incredible work they do every day to support and protect children and youth in Honduras, and defend their rights.
