SalvAide’s Delegations are an important part of our mission and provide the opportunity for volunteers to partake in a meaningful exchange and learning experience with communities in El Salvador. While in El Salvador delegates have an opportunity, among many other things, to:

  • Observe CORDES development projects, such as a cooperative bakery, organic fair trade cashew plant, and family farm plan;
  • Where appropriate, prepare and facilitate community workshops on various topics;
  • Where appropriate, live with Salvadoran families;
  • Visit CRIPDES development projects, such as a women's microcredit program, a sewing and embroidery cooperative, and a gender equity training workshop;
  • Visit handicraft workshops and get to know members of the craft persons' cooperatives;
  • Gain knowledge and experience in development project planning and execution;
  • Attend politically and culturally significant museums and events, and learn about the history and current events in El Salvador through engaging guest speakers.
