Young people in southern Honduras and in Tegucigalpa generally have few opportunities to develop leadership skills or influence the social and economic decisions that daily impact their lives and futures. Centro de Desarrollo Humano (CDH) supports the development of youth leaders and their organizations and networks, to promote civic engagement and participation in the development of their local communities. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in Honduras. CDH’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
