Centro de Derechos de Mujeres (CDM) in El Salvador, with the support of UN Trust Fund, implemented the project “Strengthening leadership and articulation to prevent violence against women in Honduras” between January 2020 and 30 June 2023. The project aimed to reduce violence against women (emotional, psychological, economic, physical and sexual) by improving their quality of life and citizen security in the departments (administrative regions) of Cortés, Francisco Morazán, Yoro, Santa Bárbara, La Paz and Atlántida and Colón, through organizational strengthening, advocacy and awareness-raising.  

The project focused on strengthening women’s networks and organizations to advocate independently for their rights against private and public institutions in charge of protecting them. By mapping local actors and promoting dialogue spaces between them, the project was able to create a protection and prevention network.  

The final evaluation found the project showed great flexibility to fully meet its objectives.   

Main findings of the evaluation:  

  • The project was implemented with a high degree of flexibility and adaptation to the specific needs that emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic.  
  • The initiative contributed to strengthening the women's and feminist movement in Honduras, fostering strategic alliances and promoting joint actions to push for a comprehensive law on violence against women.  
  • The project consolidated collective advocacy initiatives at the municipal and departmental levels, focusing on eradicating violence against women.  
  • The project fully met its objectives because it strengthened capacities. It impacted nationally many women's network organizations and disseminated laws and public policies on gender equality, people with disabilities, and violence against women, girls and young people.
