About the Journey
Through our partnership with La Casa de mi Padre, this global(x) team will head to El Salvador. Just north of the equator in Central America, it’s a land of abundant volcanoes, mountaintop views, black-sand beaches, and tropical flowers and forests. El Salvador is also the most densely populated country in Central America, where the cycle of broken families and extreme poverty is difficult to escape.
From Atlanta, the global(x) team will fly into San Salvador, El Salvador’s capital city. Your hotel is a short drive from the airport and about 35 minutes to the La Casa Farm and children’s homes where you’ll be serving each day.
We’re excited to come alongside La Casa de mi Padre as they work to restore families by providing a loving family environment for some of the country’s most vulnerable children. With three family homes on the property and a transition home in town, they’ve successfully created opportunities for children in need to experience love and acceptance in a traditional family environment.
We want to build a compassionate, high-energy team that’s ready to share the love of Christ with these local children and families. Spanish-speaking applicants are a plus, but it’s not a requirement for this journey.
Some of the projects the team may take on include painting, landscaping, cleaning, organizing, and any other needs the community may have. You’ll have time to get to know the children and the families that live on the property and hike to visit with and deliver meals to families in the surrounding village.
The Salvadoran families and children will truly touch your heart. They have lived in poverty and seen much suffering, but they have hope for a better tomorrow. If you’re ready to serve these children and families, apply for this journey now!
New for 2020!
You're busy enough, so we're taking some things off your to-do list! We've reduced the number of forms you need to complete, simply by adding a few questions to the global(x) application. We'll also collect your credit card information during the application process so that we can automatically credit your deposit to your account once you're placed on a team. And, no more paper copies of your passport needed, just upload it in your application or to your ServiceReef profile, and you're done!
