Sometimes when we are busy living life, things will make themselves apparent so much that it almost seems like a duty or calling. When you see, feel, and know there is a purpose greater than your own needs. you have the choice to ignore these times and put your head back down, or look up and charge forward and do your best to make a difference.

When I started Helping Hands Foundation 8 years ago in El Salvador, it was in an attempt to do just that – charge ahead and do something for low income children in El Salvador. I do not believe there are borders on what a focused group of well-meaning and dedicated people can accomplish; therefore today, with the help of all the Helping Hands volunteers, we will extend our projects to the neighboring countries in Central America. We did many types of projects that positively influenced the environment, infrastructure, the homeless, and animals, but there was one thing that always stuck with me – the face of a child.

We will continue to strive to provide the so needed help and assistance to the many children in Central America so that they become accomplished young men and women, even though they were born in the midst of a huge disadvantage in comparison to other children in their surroundings.
