El Salvador

Lessons on Love and Resilience

Ten years ago, 19-year-old Anna Stout made her first trip to a small community in El Salvador. The people of El Espino soon became her family and the town her second home. She helped form the Foundation for Cultural Exchange, a Colorado-based nonprofit, which has been changing lives in El Espino and in Colorado ever since.

This book offers a narrative that is distinct from the hopelessness and bloodshed reported in the media, and instead humanizes the struggle to overcome the unimaginable odds to succeed and thrive in El Salvador.
