El Salvador
Project Goals: 

To implement a program that leverages remittances from abroad to improve education in El Salvador and surrounding countries. Through this project PADF held workshops for Salvadoran associations in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles to train them in the development of educational initiatives that would be undertaken in partnership with the hometowns of participating immigrants. In addition, PADF seeks to incorporate new private sector partners in this effort and engage the varied parties in regional conferences on the diaspora and private sector in the pursuit of national development objectives.
