The USAID Crime & Violence Prevention Project Official Launch in El Salvador
The Crime & Violence Prevention Project was launched on Tuesday, April 23rd in Nejapa, El Salvador with special guests: Sergio Vladimir Quijada, Mayor of Nejapa; David Munguia Payes, Minister of Justice & Security; Mari Carmen Aponte, US Ambassador to El Salvador; Kirk Dahlgreen, USAID Mission Director and Harold Sibaja, Project Director.
This project will build on USAID and Creative’s previous prevention programs in Central America with the aim of increasing citizen safety in El Salvador. Creative will work to support the Government of El Salvador’s national level prevention efforts, as well as the expansion of municipal-led crime and violence prevention programming.
We look forward to working with USAID El Salvador, our partners: Institute for Research and Development for Violence Prevention and Social Coexistence (CISALVA) , the Foundation for the Support of Municipalities of El Salvador (FUNDAMUNI) and a number of local stakeholders toward reducing the incidence of crime and violence in El Salvador. More important we look forward to working with Salvadorean youth so they can live in a better place and achieve their dreams!
