POPULAR HUMAN DEVELOPMENT SCHOLARSHIPS
As US trade and neo-liberal policies continue to influence the cost of living and availability of work in El Salvador, immigration of Salvadorans to the US, Mexico and Canada has become a critical issue both north and south. MASCP funds scholarships for university bound youth in Arcatao in hopes that this will give them skills to not only stay in their country but also to become future leaders. In order to attend university in San Salvador, the students need transport, housing, meals and books
At home, MASCP educates people about US trade policies and cultivates relationships with Wisconsin’s policy makers in Washington to inform them about the consequences of US US foreign policies in Central America.
