AVP Basic Workshop done in San Carlos

AVP El Salvador continues to work in various communities around the country and has also been increasingly active with youth–through religious groups, schools, and at a youth detention center with gang-involved youth. The facilitators also continue to work with the staff of local NGOs, such as Co-Madres (families of the disappeared).

One participant said, “The first workshop gave us models for our transformation and the second has deepened our work with others and has given us confidence.” The women reported that they now have the confidence to participate in community meetings, not ceding all the decisions to others.
