Anderson lives with his mother. He is responsible for running errands. His mother is sometimes employed as a laborer.

For fun, Anderson enjoys soccer, playing with cars and running. He attends Bible class regularly and is in kindergarten where his performance is average.

Because of your sponsorship, Anderson will have new opportunities to learn and grow physically, mentally, and spiritually. Thank you for your concern and prayers.
Anderson lives on the plains of Barrio El Calvario, home to approximately 25,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, cement walls and corrugated iron roofs. The primary ethnic group is comprised of Mestizos and the most commonly spoken language is Spanish.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bread, plantains and rice. Common health problems in this area include malnutrition, skin illnesses and the flu. Half of the adults in Barrio El Calvario are unemployed but some work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $100 per month. This community has electricity, drinking water and street lighting but needs housing, employment opportunities, libraries, vocational training, drug and alcohol abuse prevention and the Gospel.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Semillas En Tierra Fértil Student Center to provide Anderson with Bible classes, nutritious snacks, medical and dental checkups, birthday celebrations, academic support and vocational training. The center staff will also provide parenting classes and income-generating activities for the parents or guardians of Anderson.
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.
