Solidarity & Support

Is Our Goal

The Santa Luisa School has provided children from San Salvador’s poorest families with an education rooted in the Gospels for more than 80 years.

The school has survived the increasingly tough surroundings. It has weathered the country’s horrific civil war from the late 1970s until the early 1990s. The school’s location in a market neighborhood of the inner city represents their best chance to break out of the cycle of poverty that surrounds them. 

The Santa Luisa School was blessed to receive  visits from martyred Archbishop Oscar Romero,   who was canonized a Saint by Pope Francis in 2018.
