Piénsalo2Veces is a communication campaign that seeks to inform you about safe migration in order to avoid risky situations and scams. Our activities in El Salvador are created alongside young people who want to impact their communities in a positive way!


Learn with our stories!

  • They only tell you part of the story, get reliable information!

    Some people only tell part of their story when they migrate. Neither the journey nor settling in another country is easy. So, get information from reliable sources before making a decision as important as leaving your home and family behind.

  • The “Think Twice” manifiesto

    Young people from El Salvador and Honduras have a message for you: check the information you are getting is trustworthy. If you are looking for information about migration or local opportunities in your community, beware of scams!

  • Think Twice song

    Are you looking for a chance to migrate or for local opportunities? Do you believe everything you hear? Listen to this song recorded by young artists in El Salvador and Honduras.

  • An easy scholarship?

    Sometimes there are offers that seem too good, but beware! Find out where the information comes from and verify the sources. There are many people trying to trick you with fake information about migration and opportunities.

  • Be suspicious of certain offers abroad!

    You get a link to apply for a job in another country, everything looks too easy because you don't need any studies or experience. This offer may be a scam, remember that getting a job is a process with several requirements. Always verify the company and never give money in advance!

  • Social experiment: the job is yours!

    Young people are looking for new opportunities, but it’s important to keep in mind to be careful of those that seem to be so good that we cannot miss. Remember, you should not pay for a job and do not rely on offers that promise you to get your travel documents. This can be a scam.
