USAID addresses the drivers of illegal immigration by working with the government and people of El Salvador for a country that is more prosperous, self-reliant and safe so Salvadorans believe they can thrive at home. Security activities help create safe communities, reduce crime and violence, and strengthen law enforcement so that criminals are brought to justice. Through education, job training, and partnerships with business, USAID increases employment opportunities, particularly for youth, who, without alternatives, would be more likely to attempt to illegally immigrate. USAID improves government transparency and accountability and promotes citizen oversight of public resources to reduce corruption. Our work helps Salvadorans envision a brighter future in El Salvador
