VIOLENCE PREVENTION CENTER (CEPREV): HONDURAS

Honduran Social Investment Fund and CEPREV Nicaragua

The objective is to expand the CEPREV Nicaraguan model for violence against women (VAW) prevention to three cities in Honduras. This model focuses on changing conceptions of masculinity and gender roles. To accomplish this, at-risk youth, parents, teachers and students are trained as promoters in violence prevention. The program also includes institutional strengthening through the training of the police and other public servants. To date, more than 30,000 people from government and civil society have been trained.
 

Beneficiaries.
Youth at risk between 13-30 years old and public servants

What is being evaluated?
The impact of the program in 20 neighborhoods with regards to changes in attitudes and behaviors related to VAW. Evidence on the effectiveness of both the VAW prevention and the institutional strengthening components will be produced.
