Radio Progreso-ERIC accompanies the people of Honduras, defends their human rights, and promotes economic, social and political alternatives which benefit marginalized communities.

This project builds the capacity of the media, and of environmental, women’s and Indigenous organizations in order to bring about social change in a context of widespread poverty, inequality and corruption. Through field visits, workshops and skills training, it promotes dialogue and strengthens democracy.
