Project Description

Young people and residents struggle in their urban communities in Armenia due to violence and employability challenges. Asociación de Jóvenes Pro Arte en Armenia (JOPROAR) provides technical assistance to young people to develop skills in leadership and workforce preparation and engages with community groups to rehabilitate public space. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in El Salvador. JOPROAR’s activities strengthen communities through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.

This grant is part of the IAF’s efforts to address the root causes of irregular migration in Central America.
