Country Chair: Federico J Rivas

El Salvador


Welcome to Global Dignity El Salvador!

We are traversing an important inflection point in El Salvador and the northern triangle of Central America. With highest rates of violence prevailing, and an absence of hope in our younger generations, promoting Dignity has never been so important nor vital for the future of our region. I am convinced we need to empower our youth and especially our young women and girls—to dream higher, and inspire others to assume with dire courage, and optimism, the protagonist roles our society so deeply needs. My hope is you too, will join us in this endeavor to promote dignity and build sustained peace for the generations to come!
