Real Challenges  

ENLACE (pronounced en-lah-say, the Spanish word for link) has been equipping churches to transform communities in El Salvador since 1993.

El Salvador is a country full of hardship as well as opportunity. Battered by wars, earthquakes, and ongoing violence, the people of El Salvador struggle to break the cycle of poverty. In rural El Salvador:

  • 46% live in dirt floor homes 
  • 23% of children suffer from chronic malnourishment
  • 58% lack access to clean water 
  • 63% live on less than $2 per day

Real Solutions 

ENLACE responds to these challenges by equipping churches to alleviate poverty in their own communities. Over a 10-year period, ENLACE trains and coaches church leaders to work with their communities to develop sustainable solutions in the areas of:


Help us serve 150 churches by 2020 and together we can impact 500,000 people in 300 communities in El Salvador!



Of all the missions organizations I’ve worked with, I’ve never seen one more strategic in their approach and well suited for a transforming partnership with US churches."
