Communities in El Salvador face high out-migration rates, with children left behind to be cared for by busy relatives. Tiempos Nuevos Teatro (TNT) ensures that youth have a positive place to engage in activities aimed at increasing their career, civic and cultural competencies, which allow them to thrive in and out of school. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to creating inclusive societies in El Salvador. TNT’s activities support critical thinking, effective and respectful communication and opportunities to participate in decision-making. This grant is part of a broader IAF initiative focused on supporting economic prosperity, democracy, and governance consistent with the U.S. Strategy for Engagement in Central America.
