Children and Youth Projects
The Saturday Program is operated by Compassionate God Church in Ahuachapan. The children and youth are mostly from communities north of the city. The program offers reinforcement of reading and math skills, as well as basic Christian ed.
Often the mothers attend with their children and they also benefit from the program.
Most of the children in this program are assisted with financial supplements for educational costs. A group of American Baptists headed by Dianne Ashman provides support for primary students. Otra Fe is trying to assist 12 students from Ahuachapan and Metapan with secondary and university monthly support.
Saturday program: $150 CAD for 1 month
Student Assistance Program: $80 CAD is given to each student, average per month
The program offers reinforcement of reading and math skills, as well as basic Christian education.
Our scholarship program supports high school and university students living in the rural areas of Metapán and Ahuachapán, El Salvador.
