Challenge

Women in Honduras generally are discriminated against in all social and economic arenas. They carry most of the burden for providing for their families. They have the least access to credit, technology, training, equal salary for equal work, and to land, according to CIDA. Women constitute 60% of the unemployed in Honduras. The majority of the female labor force is oriented toward the informal sector of the economy where legal regulation and protection are nonexistent.

Solution

ADP will build a larger shelter for women and children at risk of violence, providing an additional 160 women and 480 children each year with legal, health and emotional support, as well as temporary shelter and seed funds to start businesses.

Long-Term Impact

Women initially seek immediate protection from violence. But after receiving emotional, psychological and legal support, they realize they can attain a better life instead of returning to their former circumstances.
