Thanks to the support of Canadian organizations, unions, professionals, educational institutions, religious organizations, and Canadians, SalvAide supports and provides funding to projects led out by our local sister-organizations in El Salvador.
Vision, Mission, Mandate
SalvAide is the only Canadian NGO with an exclusive focus on and expertise with respect to El Salvador. Our mission is to accompany the Salvadoran people as they build social justice, democracy, and economic development and sustainability.
Our mission is to bolster the civil society and the social movement in El Salvador as represented by popular, women’s, and community organizations, to strengthen local economies in El Salvador participating in regional and national efforts to create sustainable and diversified economic development and to build Canadian support for community and democratic development in El Salvador.
We work in partnership and solidarity with low-income communities in El Salvador to achieve environmental sustainability, economic self-sufficiency, and social justice through our local partners on the ground, CRIPDES and CORDES. We work to empower rural communities at the grassroots level, supporting them in project design, creating local leadership and skills, and ensuring that programs truly meet local needs.
We assist our partners by providing the financial, technical, and moral support needed for these communities to carry out their plans. The vision, initiative, organization, and implementation of the projects we support come directly from the communities with whom we work.
