Ojo de Agua, El Salvador

Initial Training

Due to the rural nature of caserios (villages) in Texistepeque, El Salvador, access to a local health center is quite limited, leading to a high incidence of preventable health diseases among these communities. IHELP plans to train Community Health Workers (CHWs) across each of the six Texistepeque districts. With limited access to public transportation, our CHWs will be able to help provide health education and resources directly to their community. Ojo de Agua is Project #5 of our Texistepeque Rural Caserios Project, where 23 new CHWs were certified and equipped.

I would like to thank IHELP for sending Madeleine and Adriana as part of our training and for helping our communities. It’s a great project, we are motivated to learn and to put into practice what we have learned whether it be personally or in our communities. This has been a great help and satisfaction in helping our communities thanks to you.
