When I first landed in El Salvador, I was carrying an English course programme and I had little idea about the country. Thanks to CINDE I had the opportunity to experience a different reality from mine. A reality that although I knew it existed, I had always ignored and this experience was a real eye-opener. I have been a volunteer with CINDE ever since, and though I volunteer from Madrid, I can’t wait to go back to El Salvador.
Get involve in our latest crowdfunding campaign
Natalia wants to be a social worker, Christian wants to be a graphic designer, Moisés wants to be a chemist and Fátima, wants to be a graduate in communication. Just like them, 28 young Salvadorans who have taken part in the educational programmes of CINDE, want to take their studies further and become skilled and empowered young professionals. They only need to be given the opportunity, and with your help, we would like to give them that chance. We are very close to reaching our goal!Help us by donating to this project and give those 28 young Salvadorans the opportunity to develop their skills, and ultimately giving them the tools for breaking poverty cycles and improving their living conditions, those of their families and their communities.
WE ARE TRANSPARENT
To people that engaged with CINDE Foundation, to the volunteers that visit us year after year and get involved in our projects, to the cooperation organizations the support our objectives, to all of them we would like to say, in the name of every children and family whose live quality has been improved: Thank you very much for all your support!
Thanks to the team working at CINDE I had the opportunity to merge into lives which are totally different from mine and I had the chance to take in a whole new world that girls, boys, mothers and teachers shared with me. I will forever be grateful for all the experiences that have enriched my life, and I hope that one day I will be able to give back all of those things, even if it is just a fraction of what I was given, to all the people in El Salvador.
I had the opportunity to cooperate with CINDE working in the different centres throughout the slum areas in San Salvador. When I decided to begin this journey, little did I know what I was going to find and see, and it was much harder than what I had imagined. This experience has enabled me to see the world with different eyes. I am currently a member and I have been an active volunteer since then.
The first time I arrived in El Salvador I was 20 years old, I really wanted to work and I was looking forward to the experience. I volunteered again several times and now I’m currently working in El Salvador coordinating a project for the organisation. CINDE has become my big family, it’s one of the best things that has ever happened to me.
