This project, "Enhancing the Livelihoods of Returnee Children and Adolescents in need of Protection and their families," is financed by the MIRPS Fund. 

According to data from the General Directorate of Migration and Immigration (DGME), from 2016 to June 2021, the number of returned children and adolescents was 22,032. These groups need sustainable alternatives to be included and reintegrated into society. 

The project will benefit 60 families of returned children and adolescents with protection needs in 2023 and 2024 through:

  • the provision of humanitarian assistance;
  • the provision of seed capital for ventures; and
  • scholarships for studies and/or technical specialization. 

The assistance provided aims to offer families access to opportunities that facilitate lasting solutions and contribute to preventing the forced displacement of children and adolescents in the country through sustainable and safe integration in the communities of origin or host and the enjoyment of their rights.


Contribute to the sustainable reintegration of returned children and adolescents with protection needs and their families in El Salvador. 

  • Deliver humanitarian aid to returned children and adolescents and their families with protection needs.

  • Deliver seed capital to returnees in need of protection. 
  • Provide study scholarships and educational material to members of returned migrant families selected to attend technical courses of their choice or for their educational continuity.
