Gloria McGillen for the Martin-Baro Fund for Mental Health and Human Rights wrote -
Help us sustain global, grassroots projects fostering psychological well-being and progressive social change in communities affected by institutional violence and repression.
The Martín-Baró Fund (a project of Peace Development Fund) was established to honor the memory of Father Ignacio Martín-Baró, a Jesuit priest and social psychologist who was murdered in El Salvador in 1989, and to further the goals to which he dedicated his life. Our grants support progressive, grassroots groups throughout the world who are challenging institutional repression and confronting the mental health consequences of violence and injustice in their communities.
"The challenge is not limited to addressing the destruction and disorders caused by the war. The challenge is to construct a new person in a new society." — Ignacio Martín-Baró
