“Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can” - Martin Luther King

Nexos sheds a light on human rights situation in Central America: The initiative aims at raising awareness, strengthening the rule of law, increasing general safety and stimulating the climate of investment in Central America.

It focuses on urgent actions so that human right defenders can exercise their rights and promoting respect for human rights, especially in the case of women, LGBTI people and indigenous groups. Nexos also works to create dialogue between the private sector and civil society organizations, implementing a regional mechanism of emergency funds and safeguards for defenders.

This is a program financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, implemented by Hivos for the Netherlands Embassy in Central America.
