Youth in Central America are running out of options. From 2011-2016, more than 10% of youth in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras migrated to the United States. Facing violence and poverty, their communities have largely been helpless to reduce migration. Interpersonal violence has been a leading cause of premature death among youth. World Vision believes youth deserve better. We have successfully reduced violence and enabled youth to pursue their educational and economic dreams at home. Of the 52,000 youth we assisted in El Salvador in 2018, only two migrated. In partnership with Cure Violence Global, churches, communities, local governments, and businesses, the Hope at Home project will reduce conflict for 100,000 youth in the most violent communities, decrease household violence, and support delivery of health, education, and vocational training services. Targets include a 50% reduction in community violence and 70% of youth participants employed, self-employed, or returning to education.
