La Factoría Ciudadana


In San Salvador, an organization called La Factoría Ciudadana, or the “Citizen Factory,” is giving former convicts, migrants and drug addicts a second chance. Built on the philosophy that restoring a person’s agency and sense of belonging in his or her country can transform not only the individual but also society, the Factoría offers a host of services from tattoo removal to therapy.

The Factoría Ciudadana was initially funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Crime and Violence Prevention Project.
