A Message From Kim Gollings

I am going back to build with Habitat for Humanity in El Salvador.

El Salvador is, at once, the smallest and the most densely populated country in Central America. The housing shortage affects more than 944,000 families and continues to grow as the population increases. That statistic means that 6 out of 10 families live in inadequate housing. With approximately 31.9% of the population living in relative or extreme poverty, many families do not have access to financing to improve their homes. Salvadoran families and their homes are vulnerable to threats such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and floods. In addition, a 12-year civil war resulted in the loss of some 75,000 lives and the displacement of many families. Decades later, complications with land legalization limit access to adequate housing. In addition, social violence is prompting many families to leave their homes and communities

About This Campaign

We will be building in the region of La Libertad in El Salvador. We will be working alongside the homebuyers and Spanish-speaking local masons.
Homes are small — tiny by our standards, a few hundred square feet.
On average, a single-family home in El Salvador costs about $7,000.
Modest by American standards, the home consists of two to three rooms with simple electrical and plumbing systems.
For families earning only $6.25 to $25 a day, it's a home of infinite value and opportunity.
Each house allows families to move out of mud, cardboard or tin shanties and into decent, affordable homes that are built to keep them safe during El Salvador’s frequent earthquakes and inclement weather.



As you build, you’ll be welcomed into the community. Learn to make pupusas and try other typical foods, meet the neighbors whose community you’re helping to improve and explore local sites. This trip is a unique opportunity to experience life inside the culture.

Global Village sends volunteers to build with Habitat for Humanity projects across the world. Get your hands dirty on the work site, meet families whose housing situations have been improved with Habitat’s help, experience the country like an insider and do it all alongside a team of like-minded volunteers. No experience is required! This build is your next step with Habitat to make the world a better place.

    While I wish I could physically help out, that is not an option given my medical issues. As a recently retired teacher, I can do occassional sub work and love donating 1/2 of every day's pay to the work of the "builders".
