We support the implementation of evidence-based programming that is not afraid of innovation. The populations we serve deserve the highest quality services possible, with the best chance of making an impact in their lives. We strive for continuous improvement in everything we do.
Local knowledge for sustainability
We privilege local knowledge to shape the interventions we support, in humble recognition of the lived experiences that must guide our work. This practice is also rooted in a commitment to sustainability, wherein our impact on the Salvadoran community we serve must ultimately be integrated into a long-term vision that can exist independently from our support.
Fostering solidarity with an option for the poor
The programming we support makes the intentional choice to offer opportunities and services with a principled option for the poor. Born out of a praxis of solidarity, we actively seek out the opportunity to connect individuals and groups within El Salvador and abroad to the community we serve.
Empowerment to build community
We support processes focused on the empowerment of women, children, and families, to confront and overcome the manifestations of oppression that limit their personal and professional growth. We promote opportunities that will leverage these experiences of empowerment to build community, which we consider both a key aspect of our vision for the future as well as our day-to-day interactions.
Transparency and adaptability
We operate with transparency in the stewardship of our resources. We are faithful to the mission and vision we have been entrusted with, while at the same time committing ourselves to adaptability in the face of changing circumstances and priorities as mediated by our local partners and stakeholders.
