Honduras - Nuestras Raices Project (English)

The objective of the Nuestras Raices Project is that indigenous and Afro-Honduran groups have increased participation in the integrated development processes of their communities and their nation. This objective will be achieved by strengthening the communities' local capacity to build sustainable organizations, development projects and cultural identity. To this end, the project will actively promote interaction between the ethnic communities, local governments and central government agencies and programs. During the three-year project, Nuestras Raices will seek to strengthen the participation and influence of Honduras' ethnic groups in local development processes. The project has three components. Component 1 supports a process of participatory development planning among the indigenous and Afro-Honduran communities and the federations in order to: (a) train and prepare ethnic communities and their ethnic representations to actively participate in the local development planning process; (b) identify subprojects to be financed under Nuestras Raices and other programs; and (c) encourage ethnic federations to work more closely with municipalities to leverage funds. Component 2 allocates grants for subprojects. Component 3 finances capacity building of ethnic communities to lead their own development process, institutional strengthening of the Nuestras Raices team, located within al Fondo Hondureno de Inversion Social (FHIS), and monitoring and evaluation. The main capacity building activities include training and technical assistance to the communities in participatory development planning, project identification, planning, execution, operation and maintenance, and funds and materials management.
