Habitat for Humanity El Salvador
The organization built its first 29 houses in 1992, in the department of Santa Ana. Since then, much program renovation and organizational growth have taken place. As a result, the national organization has been able to provide increasingly more effective responses to the frequent loss of homes to natural disasters. The national organization’s work is performed through a central national office and six branches in Santa Ana, Sonsonate, San Salvador, San Vicente, Usulután and La Paz.
The country still lacks over 600,000 homes and the average income with both parents working is $288/month. Habitat for Humanity needs volunteers to help with a variety of home construction projects designed to meet the needs of the local population. In many cases local volunteers are involved. There are many other projects offered, such as financial education for local citizens on taking and repaying loans.
