In El Salvador, violence between government forces and powerful gangs has forced thousands of children and parents to flee their homes. We work with domestic organizations to support these families and create an environment where children are safe and protected.

World Vision El Salvador

World Vision El Salvador began operations in 1975. In El Salvador, we put our gifts, knowledge and action to work in service of children, adolescents and youth, so that they can life to the full and develop their full potential.

Our programs focus on strengthening young people with skills for life, and allowing them to live and grow in resilient environments that promote their development. Through sponsorship, we empower girls and boys, their communities and families to overcome the root causes of their vulnerability.

Our Humanitarian and Emergency Affairs team is prepared to deal with emergencies that arise in the country. In addition, our vision of partnership allows us to create an articulated network with government agencies, partners and donors to have a greater reach and provide an immediate response to emergencies.
