A new Childrens charity, Gulf of Hope in La Union, El Salvador
Gulf of Hope is a new charity, providing support to the children of La Union, El Salvador. We currently provide schooling for six little girls, and school supplies to about 30 boys and girls, as well as clothes and other needs we identify when we get there.
We are aiming for nonprofit humanitarian organization status which we hope to achieve in 2010. We are focusing on providing the means for education to impoverished children. We are hoping that caring donors the world over give these poor children an opportunity at a better life.
As an organization, we are fairly young. In the future, we are hoping to impact every aspect of a child's life, providing assistance to ‘our children’ in areas such as:
Health: access to a doctor, dentist, vaccines and medicine
Education: uniforms and school supplies, tuition assistance, access to tutoring
Nutrition: malnutrition screenings, feeding programs, supplements and educational programs
Youth: peer education, civic responsibility and scholarships
Community: clean-water initiatives, sanitary latrines and micro-enterprise programs
Family: household items, income-generation programs, educational opportunities and housing and home-repair assistance
WHO IS GULF OF HOPE?
Gulf of Hope: education as a tool against poverty, violence, drug and alcohol abuse.
