Mejores Escuelas, Mejores Futuros

Porque creemos que la educaci√≥n es un elemento clave para acabar con la pobreza, nos esforzamos por mejorar la calidad no s√≥lo de las competencias de los profesores y el equipamiento, sino tambi√©n por mejorar las escuelas para que los ni√Īos quieran seguir estudiando.

Vea el siguiente vídeo y conocer cómo un poco hace mucho por las comunidades más vulnerables y olvidadas.

Gracias al apoyo del Grupo Santuario de Baja de Sur, de Palo Alto, California, por financiar este proyecto.

Better Schools, Brighter Futures
Because we believe that education is a key element in ending poverty, we strive to improve the quality not only of teachers’ skills and equipment, but also to improve infrastructure so that children will want to stay in school.

Watch this video and learn how a little goes a long way for the most vulnerable and neglected communities.

Thank you to the support of the South Bay Sanctuary Covenant Group of Palo Alto, California for funding this project.

Nuestras Raíces

Nuestra organizaci√≥n incluye la palabra “frontera” en ella, porque nacimos en la frontera de Honduras y El Salvador, en un campo de refugiados llamado Colomoncagua.

Nuestros fundadores norteamerican@s fueron trabajadores humanitarios en el campamento, nuestros fundadores fueron m√©dicos en plena guerra, nuestros fundadores fueron dadores de santuario, que arriesgaron sus vidas para exponer la verdad y ayudar al pueblo salvadore√Īo.

Ya se trate de escudos humanos, infraestructura a gran escala, legalizaci√≥n de tierras, financiaci√≥n de bancos comunitarios … Para VOCES, todo comenz√≥ all√≠. Para VOCES, el acompa√Īamiento sigue siendo todo.

Our Roots

Our organization includes the word “border” in it, because we were born on the border of Honduras and El Salvador, in a refugee camp called Colomoncagua.

Our North American founders were humanitarian workers in the camp, our founders were doctors in the midst of war, our founders were sanctuary givers, who risked their lives to expose the truth and help the Salvadoran people.

Whether it’s human shields, large-scale infrastructure, land legalization, community bank financing … For VOCES, it all started there. For VOCES, accompaniment is still everything.
