MOJE through the "Entrepreneurs School" will teach young people to fight because things are achieved with quality, effort and above all creativity. We have no doubt that at the end of this project we will have 75 well-trained youth in the technical areas of Professional Cooking, Bakery, Graphic Design and Screen Printing. As well, in the human social area we will have developed skills for life in these youth; and in the business management area they will have well defined & clear business ideas.

Violence has become one of the major challenges in El Salvador. In 2014, El Salvador ranks fourth violence worldwide, according to the UN. This multi-causal phenomenon is due to unemployment, low income, social marginalization and exclusion in which many youth live. This situation leads them to search for not lawful means to achieve their goals, contributing to the increase of youth violence. Moreover, the low level of employability of youth in El Salvador is worrying.


This project seeks to develop work for the prevention of violence and labor insertion through the Entrepreneurship School at MOJE, where youth have the opportunity to receive comprehensive training in which they develop their skills for life, business skills, technical capabilities, and stimulate their creativity. In the past 6 years, more than 900 young people have passed through our process and at least 30% have formal employment and at least 175 youths have a micro-enterprise.

Long-Term Impact

With the development of this project we will have improved the living conditions of the young people who participate in the process of technical, business, and human social training. Having creative, motivated, and participatory leaders with the skills to start their own business or able to obtain formal employment; thereby, we will help to reduce the rates of youth violence that currently exist in El Salvador as well as contribute to reducing the young people's migration.
