Employability is an issue for young people in San Julian and Cuisnahuat. Asociación Nuevo Amanecer de El Salvador (ANADES) provides technical assistance in sustainable agriculture and production to develop leadership and management skills among young men and women and to increase income for them and their families. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to expand economic opportunity in El Salvador. ANADES’ activities promote smallholder agriculture and food production to enhance food security and ensure meaningful opportunities for communities to thrive.
This grant is part of our broader initiative to support economic prosperity, democracy and governance consistent with the U.S Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
