El Salvador is the smallest, yet most densely populated, country in Central America. The country’s main source of income comes from El Salvadorans who work abroad and send money back home to their families.
El Salvador’s modern political climate has been tumultuous, impacting the economic livelihoods and safety of many of its citizens – especially the most vulnerable families and children. Since El Salvador is still rebuilding after the end of its civil war in 1992, many residents lack access to clean water and proper nutrition. This impacts education throughout the entire country. Using a holistic approach, Feed the Children strives to empower families and children to improve their livelihoods.
