In her home, Alisson helps by making beds and running errands. She lives with her mother. Her mother is employed as a laborer. There are 2 children in the family.

Alisson is not attending school because she is too young. Art and running are her favorite activities. She also attends church activities and Bible class regularly.

Your love and support will help Alisson to receive the assistance she needs to develop her potential. Please pray for her.
Alisson lives on the plains of Cantón San Marcos, home to approximately 3,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of tin and have dirt floors. The regional diet consists of maize, beans and rice.

Common health problems in this area include kidney infections, respiratory illnesses, stomach infections and worms. Most adults in Cantón San Marcos are unemployed but some work as day laborers and earn the equivalent of $80 per month. This community has electricity but needs libraries, vocational training, drinking water, employment opportunities and recreation centers.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Joyas de Cristo Student Center to provide Alisson with Bible teaching, hygiene education, nutritious meals, medical checkups, birthday celebrations, academic reinforcement and handicraft and vocational workshops. Sixty percent of the children in this project do not attend school because they are underage. The center staff will also provide meetings and hygiene education for the parents or guardians of Alisson.
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.
