Diana lives in the mountainous community of Valle del Sol, home to approximately 6,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of cement and have corrugated tin roofs.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bananas, bread, cassava, plantains, rice and potatoes. Common health problems in this area include respiratory infections, intestinal parasites and skin diseases. Most adults in Valle del Sol are unemployed but some work in factories and earn the equivalent of $171 per month. This community has electricity, water and telephone service but needs libraries, vocational training centers and employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Amigos de Jesús Student Center to provide Diana with Bible teaching, medical checkups, dental and hygiene education, special celebrations, academic reinforcement, school registration fees and computer classes. The project staff will also provide meetings and family counseling for the parents or guardians of Diana.
Most Salvadorans live in the country's subtropical central region of valleys and plateaus. A hot coastal plain is in the south and the north is mountainous. Nearly all the land is farmed; coffee is grown in the mountains.

Ninety percent of El Salvador's population is of mixed Indian and Spanish descent; about 60 percent live in urban areas. Although a few Indians have retained many of their old customs and traditions, most people have adopted the Spanish language and culture. Fifty-seven percent of Salvadorans are Catholic but there is extensive activity by Protestant groups and over twenty-one percent are Protestants. Compassion works in the central, southern and western regions of the country.

El Salvador is the smallest and most densely populated country in Central America. Spain claimed the country in 1525. Almost 300 years later, El Salvador declared its independence and, after a brief union with Mexico, joined four other Central American countries to form a federation. When this union ended in 1838, El Salvador became a republic. The country experienced a period of increasing unrest during the 1970s that culminated in a civil war in the 1980s. In 1992, a peace agreement was reached.
