*At the present time, delegations to El Salvador are on hold due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

SalvAide supports solidarity with the people of El Salvador through specific program areas. Our work aims to directly accompany the struggle for social justice in El Salvador and to build Canadian awareness about the Salvadoran reality and Canadian government and business policies that impact upon that reality. All the initiatives we support are community driven, deeply democratic, and strive for gender equity. From cooperative cashew farming to helping to build participatory municipal gender equity guidelines, our partners' work is a model for sustainable democratic development in El Salvador, the only option for a future based on fairness and human rights.
