With support from the World Bank and the Sexual Violence Research Initiative (SVRI), ZonaSegura is a trauma-informed youth-centered innovative mobile solution to address teen dating violence in Honduras. Led by YTH, in partnership with GOJoven Honduras and the Public Health Institute’s (PHI) GOJoven International Program, this project aims to prevent teen dating violence (TDV) through provision of prevention information, healthy relationship education, and geo-location linkage to TDV services and resources. ZonaSegura leverages the high rates of mobile phone usage among young women and girls (YWG) and men and boys (YMB) ages 14-19 in Honduras to assist them in overcoming individual and structural barriers to accessing rights-based and gender-sensitive TDV prevention information and services.
