Reporting in Honduras is incredibly dangerous, especially on topics of crime and politics. Many are threatened, and a significant number have been murdered. From 2003 to 2014, 51 were murdered, and all but two cases remained in impunity. At least seven media workers were murdered in 2015. The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ), Council on Hemispheric Affairs (COHA), DOHA Centre for Media Freedom, Freedom House, International Press Institute (IPI), and Reporters without Borders (RSF) monitor such events, to the extent they are reported.

Human Rights Watch has a series of reports on varying topics in the country, including the failure of US officials to properly screen Hondurans before deporting them, the lack of investigations into murder of land rights activists, and other topics: http://www.hrw.org/publications/reports?topic=All&region=70.


Here is an excellent video about the work that Radio Progeso does, which touches upon restrictions on freedom of the press and violence in San Pedro Sula: http://ignatiansolidarity.net/la-voz-del-pueblo/.

Frommer’s recommends these Volunteer and Working Trips:

Honduras and Latin America, in general, are great places to devote your time and goodwill. Most volunteer programs fall in one of three categories: those that help rural communities, those that protect the environment, and those that preserve and collect data on historical sites. Most programs have a fee that will cover your food or lodging. Volunteer Honduras(www.volunteerhonduras.org) is a good place to start looking and a great resource for those thinking about volunteering in Honduras.

NPH International (tel. 504/2224-0573; www.nph.org) is a group of orphanages scattered throughout the Americas, including one near Tegucigalpa. A variety of long-term volunteers are always needed, ranging from doctors to English teachers and speech pathologists.

Proniño Honduras (tel. 504/2647-3424; www.pronino.org) and The Friends of El Hogar (www.foeh.org.uk) work with street children in northern Honduras to help them end drug addiction and focus on long-term education.

Children of the Light (tel. 504/3304-1414; www.thechildrenofthelight.org), a Christian organization, has built a school and has organized other community outreach projects for street children in the region.
