In 2016, Honduras ranked 123rd on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception index, which indicates the most corrupt countries in the world.

Factors behind the ranking include the country's weak democratic system, a fragmented civil society which does not mobilise to defend its interests, the existence of corrupt state entities linked to political parties and the lack of independence from the media. 

Other factors include high levels of organised crime as well as high levels of violence and insecurity affecting those who fight against corruption in particular.

Our approach

HondurACTion aims to mobilise Honduran society against corruption.

The programme aims to empower young people, including those from the Lenca indigenous people, to monitor actions by local and national authorities and raise awareness through campaigns.

The project aims to strengthen the capacities of journalists and independent media so they can carry out quality investigative journalism.

Finally, the project will be advocating for a national education curriculum, which incorporates ‘anti-corruption’ as a subject in all educational plans across the country.
