Since 2011, World Vision El Salvador has significantly increased its efforts to reduce violence against children and strengthen child protection systems. This report documents findings from a qualitative assessment conducted in El Salvador. The assessment examines children and adolescents’ experiences in their homes, schools and communities; protective factors such as life skills; and the changes in the legal framework and partnership for child protection. The evidence is presented according to the main child protection issues, the immediate and root causes of these issues, the characteristics of the child protection system, and World Vision’s contributions
to the child protection system.
