Aminta Navarro

Aminta Navarro is the founder and Coordinator of the Dakar-Honduras Forum Coalition and member of the Latin American Campaign for the Right to Education (CLADE), where she was part of the Board of Directors during the period 2014-2018.

Since childhood, she's been involved in defending education, through being a faithful defender of free, public education as a responsibility of the State. She is a true activist, a leader throughout her trajectory as a student, and an active member of youth movements in the fight for human rights, particularly women's rights.

As a member of the Latin America Youth and Adult Council for Education (CEAAL), she was Coordinator of the Literacy Network for Central America and Director of CEAAL for the Central American and Caribbean region. Within the Dakar-Honduras Forum, she did arduous work to change the legislation and educational policies.

She believes in working within the network, and in national, regional, and global partnership as a way to find collective solutions for the human right to education, and for free, quality, and public education as a responsibility of the State.

This is why she accepted to represent Latin America in the Global Campaign for Education (GCE) Board, contributing to its important work in ensuring people are able to exercise their right to education without restrictions of any kind.

The Global Campaign for Education (GCE) is a civil society movement that aims to end exclusion in education. Education is a basic human right, and our mission is to make sure that governments act now to deliver the right of everyone to a free, quality, public education.
