BCGEU partner APSIES in El Salvador - women's empowerment

March 1, 2017

Supported through CoDevelopment Canada, APSIES is a grassroots organization that works in five rural municipalities in southeastern El Salvador to mobilize citizens to protect and enhance publicly-funded healthcare and other social services. APSIES takes a comprehensive approach to health as a human right, with a special emphasis on women’s empowerment primarily through education and capacity-building with both citizens’ health committees and women’s associations.

This video does a great job of explaining the work on the women's committees, in the sisters' own words.
