Over the years, Christian Aid has worked collaboratively with indigenous leaders and communities in Honduras.
Together, we’ve learned valuable lessons about the importance of protecting the environment and preserving ancient traditions.
We continue to stand in solidarity with the indigenous peoples, recognising their continuous struggle for their rights, the defence of their territories and for their voices to be heard for self-determination, justice and the historic contribution to the solution of the great crises like the climate.
Empowering communities: Our vision for change
As part of our dedication to creating positive change, Christian Aid, with the invaluable support of USAID, has launched the ‘USAID Reducing Conflict through Indigenous Women and Youth’ project.
Working through the partnership of local organisation OCDIH and CDH, the project leverages the role of women and youth to support safe and secure environments.
Launch event highlights
The launch event, on 8 August 2023, brought together young people, indigenous Maya-Chorti and Lenca leaders, and members of various organizations in an act that praised unity and collaboration. It was a real success that filled us with pride.
Taking place ahead of UN’s International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, the event allowed many to come together and celebrate the rich heritage and resilience of indigenous peoples around the world.
The energy and enthusiasm witnessed during the launch reinforced our determination to drive positive and lasting change. We’re committed to a future that values diversity, empowers indigenous voices and promotes a world in harmony.
