About Our Team
Natural disasters and poverty continue to plague the people of El Salvador. Hundreds of thousands of families live in substandard housing. Others literally have nowhere to call home. Members of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans are making a difference – and not just one family at a time. Entire communities are coming to life through Thrivent Builds Worldwide – El Salvador Community.
From 2009-2010, teams helped build the community of Villa Esperanza: 75 homes, a community center, and a marketplace. In 2011 and 2012 Thrivent Financial is supporting the Getsemeni community in Ahuachapan, just a few miles from Villa Esperanza. Both these communities go far beyond providing a safe home. Residents have opportunities to learn new skills and produce marketable goods or services – ultimately generating sufficient income to break the cycle of poverty.
Please visit this page often, as we will post updates on the trip’s status, upload photos and video as we get them, and share with you our personal experiences as we work in partnership with the Salvadoran families. Spread the word about the Salvadoran people and our project with them. You can use the “Share” buttons at the upper right to share our page and our cause on Facebook, Twitter, Blogger, and many more social media sites, as well as through email. Help us spread the word, and together we will create positive change!
