Hablemos Claro

Hablemos Claro (loosely translated as Let’s Be Clear or Let’s Talk Openly) is a train-the-trainer style workshop series developed for the local educators at Honduras Child Alliance (HCA). The training offers comprehensive sexuality education (CSE), whilst also preparing the team to facilitate age-appropriate sexuality education activities with children aged 6-11 years in the HCA’s ongoing programming.

Context

Honduras is one of the seven countries in Central America. According to recent estimates, almost three-fourths of its population live in poverty, and over half of the population in extreme poverty; many Honduras have no access to basic healthcare or an education.

Against this backdrop, Honduras ranks first in terms of femicide rate (with approximately 95% of the cases going unpunished), has the highest adolescent birth rate in Central America, and continues to ban abortion and emergency contraception in all circumstances, including rape.

Program Summary

Hablemos Claro provides comprehensive sexuality education to educators working in Honduras Child Alliance, and an opportunity for them to practice implementing CSE activities in non-formal education settings. The train-the-trainer style workshops cover a range of topics, including:
