Past Canadian Projects

  • we have yet to be recruited for a project in El Salvador


The Home in El Salvador

  • founded in 1999 the 6th NPH orphanage in Santa Ana, El Salvador.
  • based on the needs of the many neglected and abandoned children.
  • El Salvador is still devastated after their 12-year civil war.
  • The rate of violence and crime is very high and many children became orphans because of the war.
  • As with many of the children in the care of NPH, they have been both verbally and physically abused and have had to live on the streets to survive. 
  • current home in El Salvador was completed in 2004 in the town of Texisteque. 
  • has educational facilities for preschool through secondary school, clinic, administrative offices, vocational workshops,a large kitchen and dining hall, gardens, farm, and homes for boys, girls and babies. 
  • older students live at another home in Santa Ana to prepare for and attend university or technical schools.

Statistics Speak for Themselves

  • outside of school hours, the children now have lots of room to play.

  • there are sports courts and grassy fields for games and they can take walks to the river running through the middle of the property, with the tías and tíos.

  • other extracurricular activities include a very talented choir and dance group; both groups are invited to perform all over the territory for diverse audiences.


Although there are no plans to send Fotocan volunteers to El Salvador in the near future, new sponsorships are always welcome.
