If you're a woman in El Salvador you have to be relieved if you grow up in an environment without physical violence. The country needs powerful women and righteous men in strong organisations. Work to do!

Step 1: We bring women together

It is not self-evident for oppressed women to come up for themselves. Trias strengthens three organisations in El Salvador which every day consciously work on the leadership and self-development of women.

Step 2: Women strengthen women

Thanks to our training courses, hundreds of women are standing up to claim their rights all across El Salvador. They become trainers for trainers: role models who arm other opinion leaders to promote the battle for gender equality as broadly as possible.

Step 3: We involve men too

We explain to the men that a balanced society is the only path toward sustainable development. Through workshops and self-development they change and in this way a new balance of power can be negotiated in the organisations.

Step 4: Building bridges between organisations

As soon as organisations get to work with our 14 point step-by-step plan, we put them in touch with like-minded associations. They share knowledge, experience and network contacts, so that the social awareness about gender equality can gradually spread.

Thanks for the unexpected opportunities you give us!
