Hedme Castro

HRD, Director
Asociación para una Ciudadanía Participativa - ACI Participa

Ms Hedme Castro is the Director of Asociación para una Ciudadanía Participativa - ACI Participa. The organisation promotes citizen participation in decision-making, as well as the knowledge and exercise of civil and political rights. It also urges governmental institutions to act under the principles of social equality and to transparently administer their resources. Hedme Castro, participated in the Front Line Defenders platform for human rights defenders in Dublin in 2013.


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.
