Sandra lives in the mountainous community of Via El Rosario, home to approximately 3,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, mud walls and tile roofs. The spoken language is Spanish.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, rice and potatoes. Common health problems in this area include diarrhea, the flu, bronchitis and mosquito-borne illnesses. Most adults in Via El Rosario are unemployed but some work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $66 per month. This community needs scholastic materials and permanent employment opportunities.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Vida Abundante Student Center to provide Sandra with Bible teaching, medical checkups, health and hygiene instruction, recreational activities, fellowship activities, computer training, bakery workshops, academic support and nutritious snacks. The center staff will also provide hygiene education and child abuse prevention programs for the parents or guardians of Sandra.
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.
