Discover Projects Kids Connect Make Connections
     

...an opportunity for her!

Marisol is a 13 year old girl living in San Juan de las Minas, a small community near Metapan, El Salvador where there is little for kids to do -- no organized sports programs, no after school, no arts programming. World Connect is supporting the implementation of a music program at Marisol's school, to offer music education and give kids a safe place to be off the streets when school isn't in session. World Connect recently celebrated the success of the project by inviting Marisol to perform at our 1,000 Projects Celebration in Brooklyn in October. In addition to charming the 300 people in the room that evening, Marisol enjoyed her first visit out of her country. This project was made possible thanks to World Connect's generous community of donors. Learn more about this project and read about our new projects that need your support

"At a time when there is much for kids to run from in El Salvador, World Connect is giving kids something to run to." - JJ Ramberg, MSNBC Host and World Connect Board Member
