Job perspectives for young people in El Salvador

El Salvador is said to be one of the most dangerous countries in Latin America. Furthermore, more than 40% of the population is living below the poverty line. Corruption, crime, legal uncertainties, and poor education and training possibilities for adolescents pose big obstacles to the country’s development. A high unemployment rate is the result.

Our project “Job perspectives for young people” is aiming on improving the living situations of young men and especially young women.

The foundation's funds are used for:

  • Information events for adolescents
  • Selecting young people for the training program
  • Implementation of workshops and vocational preparation courses
  • Seminars which aim to strengthen social skills and professional competences
  • Finding cooperation partners in the form of companies who are willing to offer internships

This project is also supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). We hope that our work together with Plan International will provide the young program participants with better working opportunities and therefore enable them to a brighter future.
