Equality for Women and Girls

PSI & PASMO/Honduras

Summit supports the work of Population Services International (PSI) and its local affiliate, PASMO Honduras, as it pilots girl-focused activities reaching about 640 girls aged 10-19 in 11 communities in the rural Valle de Sula area of Honduras. Launched in 2014, this program, known as Chicas en Conexión, aims to increase empowerment and gender equity by expanding educational opportunities where few exist beyond 6th grade, providing safe meeting spaces, and training girls and female leaders in decision-making skills, as well as increasing access and use of ASRH services among adolescent girls. PASMO Honduras utilizes a socio-ecological model which targets girls but also involves their families (especially boys and men), schools, community organizations, and policy makers.
