David Valle

HRD, Project Coordinator
Centre for LGBTI Cooperation and Development

David Valle is the Project Coordinator of Centro para la Cooperación y Desarollo LGBTI – SOMOS CDC (Centre for LGBTI Cooperation and Development), based in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. The organisation promotes LGBTI rights in the country, developing cooperation programs which include aspects of sexual health, civil participation and human rights for the LGBTI population. 


Human rights defenders suffer extrajudicial executions, enforced disappearances, torture and ill-treatment as well as judicial harassment, threats and stigmatisation. Journalists, lawyers, prosecutors, those defending the rights of women, children, the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) community, indigenous and Afro-Honduran communities, and those working on environmental and land rights issues are particularly at risk.
