Our mission is to build social and economic justice, democracy and dignity with the people of El Salvador.
WHAT IS SALV AIDE?
SalvAide is a registered Canadian charitable organization composed of a network of communities and supporters that stretches from coast to coast.
SALV AIDE'S GOALS ARE:
To increase the strength of civil society in El Salvador as represented by non- governmental organizations (NGOs), popular organizations, women's organizations and communities.
To strengthen local economies in El Salvador which are participating in regional and national efforts to create sustainable and diversified economic development.
To build Canadian support for community and democratic development in El Salvador.
WHAT DOES SALVAIDE DO?
SalvAide funds development projects in El Salvador designed by rural communities to meet their needs and priorities. Since 1985 SalvAide has funded such
diverse projects as poultry farms, dairy herds, daycares, schools, community stores, medical clinics, cottage industries and legal aid clinics. SalvAide also funds human rights work and organizational development of Salvadorean non-governmental and popular organizations.
In Canada, SalvAide fosters lasting people-to-people ties between Canadian and Salvadoreans through our Twin Community Program. Today, more than 10
communities are twinned with rural communities in El Salvador.
We organize SalvAide delegations to El Salvador.
We organize cross-country tours of Salvadorean community leaders.
We distribute Urgent Actions that respond to natural disasters and human rights abuses if and when they occur in El Salvador.
