USAID awards Creative Honduras Crime and Violence Disruption Program under the SWIFT III IQC
November 28, 2012
As part of the American and Central American governments’ efforts to respond to increased crime and violence, the Honduras Crime and Violence Disruption Project will support positive activities led by citizen and civil society groups to disrupt and decrease the high level of insecurity and the effects of violence. Honduras–one of the poorest countries in the hemisphere, with 65% of its people living in poverty– is also one of the most violent nations in the world and a prime transit point for the smuggling of arms, drugs, and people. Civic initiatives include constructive efforts, such as engaging at-risk youth, promoting advocacy, and human rights reporting.
