Project Description

The daily lives of young Salvadorans have been shaped by disappearances from the civil war and by high levels of current violence and poverty. Asociación Pro-Búsqueda de Niñas y Niños Desaparecidos (Pro-Búsqueda) assesses and offers psycho-social support services, raises awareness on human rights and provides technical assistance to develop skills in conflict resolution and civic engagement. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in El Salvador. Pro-Búsqueda’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.
