About Honduras

Honduras is almost twice the size of Sri Lanka with a population of about 8 million people. Honduras has the highest homicide rate in the world, a rate six times of Chicago. In 2013, Honduras experienced 90 murders per 100,000 inhabitants. Gang violence and police corruption are two of the contributors to Honduras’ homicide rate, though, there are many underlying reasons such as lack of government resources to address the issue. Hondurans have little trust in the police to resolve and pursue justice for victims of crime, in fact, crime victims are 6.5 times more likely than non-crime victims to seek justice on their own rather than rely on the police.
