Preventing Irregular Child Migration in Central America (PICMCA)
Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (CCFC) is leading a $15.2-million regional project in El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Nicaragua, designed to improve the well-being of children and youth who are at risk of irregular migration. The Government of Canada is contributing $12.6 million to the four-year project.

For this project, CCFC is partnering with two non-governmental organizations: ChildFund International-USA and Educo-Spain.
