In February, we told you that the Daughter Project had launched in El Salvador. We are excited to report that clubs have formed, and young Salvadorian girls from at risk areas are coming together to learn about inner beauty and ways to protect themselves in a country plagued by economic and social insecurities, high rates of girl pregnancy and gang violence.
From day 1, local women were ready to build communities of support around young girls, and they are doing just that. Daughter Project training materials have been translated into Spanish, and a second round of training completed just last week. Wow!
We can accomplish much by equipping volunteers with the tools they need to protect young girls in the country of El Salvador.
