TOGETHER FOR A JUST WORLD

El Salvador

El Salvador is one of the countries with the highest murder rates in the world. In 2014, 61 murders per 100,000 inhabitants per year were registered. The murder rate among 18 to 30-year-old men is twice as high.

 

 

As part of our youth promotion and violence prevention programme in Central America, we support our partner organisations in El Salvador in strengthening the rights of young people and implementing measures to prevent violence. Another focus is the fight against sexual violence against women and girls.
