El Salvador, San Salvador, Barrio San Jacinto, Comunidad Cruz Roja, 07 April 2017  Over the past decade El Salvador has made significant progress in reducing food insecurity and malnutrition. However, extremely seriously levels of violence, inequality and poverty continue to pose major challenges to development. Fueled by poor access to nutritious food, scarcely diversified diets – poor consumption of vegetables and fruits – and a lack of nutritional awareness, three major problems overlap in El Salvador: stunting in children under five years of age, anaemia in women of reproductive age, and obesity and overweight in adults (also seen increasingly in children).   With young people representing over half of El Salvador’s population, youth plays an important role in shaping the future of their communities and society. In 2016, in collaboration with the Municipality of San Salvador, WFP launched ConectArte – an initiative aiming to transform the lives of urban youth through developing art. The project has united dozens of youth between 18 and 29 years of age from at-risk households with local and international street artists. The youth attend workshops on nutrition and hygiene, life skills and artistic techniques every week while painting murals around the city to revitalize public spaces.  The goal is to provide these young people with the skills and knowledge to improve their quality of life and to positively transform their futures through art. The project strives to strengthen their connection to the community, reinforce their self-esteem, encourage dialogue and highlight the role that access to healthy food can play in creating opportunities for change. As an incentive, WFP provides a monthly electronic food voucher that can be redeemed at local markets for food as remuneration for their time and effort. In this way, WFP can help alleviate poverty and the food insecurity of their families while positively contributing to their communities.

The goal is to provide these young people with the skills and knowledge to improve their quality of life and to positively transform their futures through art. The project strives to strengthen their connection to the community, reinforce their self-esteem, encourage dialogue and highlight the role that access to healthy food can play in creating opportunities for change. As an incentive, WFP provides a monthly electronic food voucher that can be redeemed at local markets for food as remuneration for their time and effort. In this way, WFP can help alleviate poverty and the food insecurity of their families while positively contributing to their communities.

El Salvador, San Salvador, Barrio San Jacinto, Comunidad Cruz Roja, 07 April 2017  Over the past decade El Salvador has made significant progress in reducing food insecurity and malnutrition. However, extremely seriously levels of violence, inequality and poverty continue to pose major challenges to development. Fueled by poor access to nutritious food, scarcely diversified diets – poor consumption of vegetables and fruits – and a lack of nutritional awareness, three major problems overlap in El Salvador: stunting in children under five years of age, anaemia in women of reproductive age, and obesity and overweight in adults (also seen increasingly in children).   With young people representing over half of El Salvador’s population, youth plays an important role in shaping the future of their communities and society. In 2016, in collaboration with the Municipality of San Salvador, WFP launched ConectArte – an initiative aiming to transform the lives of urban youth through developing art. The project has united dozens of youth between 18 and 29 years of age from at-risk households with local and international street artists. The youth attend workshops on nutrition and hygiene, life skills and artistic techniques every week while painting murals around the city to revitalize public spaces.  The goal is to provide these young people with the skills and knowledge to improve their quality of life and to positively transform their futures through art. The project strives to strengthen their connection to the community, reinforce their self-esteem, encourage dialogue and highlight the role that access to healthy food can play in creating opportunities for change.
