I'm so happy to announce that Chris Rodriguez and I will be taking another delegation to El Salvador this winter!
There is a lot going on in the world right now, and we want to assure you that we remain committed to Bringing History to Life through a Decade of Student Delegations to Central America. Thanks to all who have supported us throughout the years, and all who have just begun!
Why El Salvador?
From 1980-1992 Salvadorans suffered through civil war that resulted in the deaths of over 70,000 civilians & 30,000 combatants. In a country of only 5 million, it touched & traumatized all. When the war ended in 1992, U.S. Congressman Joe Moakley argued that since the U.S. government invested billions in armaments to support the Salvadoran government, that we should also invest in post-war rebuilding:
"You've got a country that's been split in half, you've got a country that's got about 50% unemployment, you've got a country that's just now entering into some kind of democratic process. I feel a responsibility. I think that we've spent $6 billion down there helping to destroy the place, I think we should spend a couple of dollars putting it back together again." This is our mission.
