2021 El Salvador - Adult 1
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 the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. Along with its beautiful mountains and stunning views, El Salvador is sadly overwhelmed by poverty and broken families.
This team will serve alongside the staff at La Casa de mi Padre as they help try to restore families by providing a loving family environment for some of the country’s most vulnerable children. Every year, La Casa de mi Padre hosts a back-to-school drive that provides children in the community with school supplies to prepare them for a successful year.
The back-to-school team will provide items like book bags, pencils, pens, notebooks, and folders for each child in La Casa. They’ll help the children prepare for school by working with them to organize their supplies, cover their books, and label folders. The team will also have the opportunity to engage in some quality downtime with the children as they work on arts and crafts projects, play games, and share meals together.
If you’re excited about spending time with, investing in, and helping children put their best foot forward, this back-to-school journey is a fantastic opportunity.
global(x) provides meaningful journeys for teams to serve at-risk people in communities around the world. We want to help you combine your faith and service so you can help make life better for those in need, grow your faith, and make a difference in the world.
