The goal of USAID/Honduras’ proposed Improving Tertiary Violence Prevention activity (ITVP) is to reduce recidivism among the highest-risk youth, those in conflict with the law in particular.
The development hypothesis for this activity is that if support to the Government of Honduras (GOH)
and local service providers transforms the nature of services from generalized to differentiated services per individual risk levels in such a way as to measurably lower their re-offending and/or increase their reinsertion into licit society, then there will be a decrease in crime and violence in their communities.Through this Activity, USAID will seek improved Human and Institutional Capacity Development (HICD) and technical proficiency of state and non-state actors seeking to provide inclusive high-quality services.
In particular, these service providers must be able to target tailored services to clients of different risk levels in the juvenile justice system in Honduras.
Ideally, the non-state actors which receive assistance from this activity would already be providing some services to this clientele.
These services could include prevention of recidivism through rehabilitation, reintegration, and reducing stigma.This activity contributes to USAID/Honduras’ Development Objective One (DO 1) - and as such the bulk of activities will be focused in five urban locations:
Tegucigalpa, San Pedro Sula, Choloma, La Ceiba, and Tela.
