BERTA CACERES

Berta Isabel Cáceres Flores (4 March 1973 – 3 March 2016) was a Honduran environmental activist and indigenous leader of the Lenca people and co-founder and coordinator of the Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras (COPINH).

She won the Goldman Environmental Prize in 2015.

She was killed in her home by armed intruders, after years of threats against her life.

Cáceres was born in La Esperanza (Intibucá). She grew up surrounded by the violence of Central America in the 1970’s, and with a role model of humanitarianism in her own home – her mother, Berta Flores, was a midwife and social activist who took in refugees from El Salvador and cared for them.

She studied education at university and graduated with a teaching qualification.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”
