"I felt like I was on a dead end street...but with Focusing and NVC, I've learned and I've changed."
"My heart was full of pain, it was heavy. Now I feel relief!"
In El Salvador, people are suffering from poverty, violence and the trauma of war. Salvadoran Focusing Trainer and ex-combatant Melba JimÃ©nez facilitates community Resilience Circles with Focusing and Nonviolent Communication, empowering people to create peace in their lives and in their families and communities.
Each $5 you donate makes it possible for one person to attend a resilience circle in his or her community.
Each $50 you donate provides a 3-hour resilience circle for 10-15 women or children who have little access to counseling or therapy.
Each $100 you donate helps to train more people to lead resilience circles in El Salvador.
Each $500 you donate enables a Salvadoran Focusing Trainer to give 10 resilience circles per month!
Each $1000 you donate makes it possible for us to concentrate on our work in the communities, rather than fundraising! To make a tax-deductible donation, please visit the El Salvador donation page at The Focusing Institute website: www.focusing.org/elsaldonate.
Thanks for making this project possible!
