In El Savador, CCR, Association of Rural Communities for the Development of Chalatenango, is the organization responsible for the re-printing of the massage manual and for the arrangements that allowed me to teach massage in the province of Chalatenango. CCR's projects include teaching organizational skills to communities, teaching poplular education via radio, managing sister community connections, running a health facility and technical projects, as well as a womens group and a youth group. Chalatenango is an area hard hit by the war in the 1980s and is filled with strong people with a history of resistance.
