El Salvador: Primary School Classroom

Minimum Fundraising Commitment: $2,500, including $150 non-refundable deposit

Education is what provides the opportunity to move from poverty into abundance. The country of El Salvador has had a hard time lifting itself up after the civil war 25+ years ago. Many Salvadorans have moved to the US in order to find jobs and provide for their family. With little access to education and very little opportunities locally, families have been split by parents trying to provide for their children.

Six years ago Surf For Life volunteers helped to build a high school. Now there is a new opportunity to build an additional classroom at the primary school. By providing youth with resources and educational opportunities they have the chance at creating a better life for themselves by staying, working, and growing their community. Surf For Life volunteers will work alongside school parents for a lasting community project and hands-on building experience by helping to build the classroom.
