The People

by

But the local people we met were friendly and sweet. On Wednesday, field trip day, I visited a village where a group of women had set up an egg business. Their chickens lay 1,020 eggs a day which they sell to loyal customers. This gives them enough money for food, but not enough for schooling. Many teens depend on sponsors from the states who cover school and travel costs.

Someone in our group brought chocolate which was a rare and welcomed treat. Another group brought 20 filters to purify their drinking water. All water in El Salvador is polluted, so now villagers will have a better way to drink clean water.   Image
