Help us reach our $50k goal this


to break the chains of poverty and forced migration in El Salvador through employment creation and education.

How can you directly support Salvadoran families this year?

Help us reach our $50k goal. We need your help to survive the pandemic. Your contribution will support our initiatives to empower women and their children's health and safety, provide educational opportunities to engage students, and create economic opportunities for Salvadorans to become wage earners at home. 


Now that our Thoman Learning Center is a reality, we need to make sure we have essential technology and infrastructure to continue education for our community as soon as the pandemic permits. Below are concrete needs you can directly support.
