Junior lives with his father and his mother. At home, duties include gathering firewood and running errands. His father is sometimes employed as a farmer and his mother maintains the home. There are 2 children in the family.

Junior is not attending school because he is too young. Soccer, playing with cars and bicycling are his favorite activities. He also attends church activities and Bible class regularly.

Your love and support will help Junior to receive the assistance he needs to develop his potential. Please pray for him.
Junior lives in the mountainous community of Cantón El Coco, home to approximately 5,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, adobe walls and tin roofs. The spoken language is Spanish.

The regional diet consists of maize, beans, bread and rice. Common health problems in this area include respiratory infections, stomach illnesses and anemia. Most adults in Cantón El Coco are unemployed but some work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $50 per month. This community has drinking water and electricity but needs educational materials, employment opportunities and vocational training centers.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Genesis Student Center to provide Junior with Bible classes, medical checkups, nutritious snacks, health education, birthday celebrations, homework help, school supplies, tutoring, educational field trips and computer classes. Fifty percent of the children in this project are not attending school because they are underage.
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.
