Project Summary

This project will showcase the work that the student organization, Art for El Salvador has done the past few years in conjuction with the non-profit organization, Art for El Salvador. The organization was brought to UNI by Maria and Niah Howard, both graduates of UNI. A student organization was formed and together the two groups have made and sold art to help provide educational needs to impoverished rural communities in El Salvador. Through the hard work of many people, Art for El Salvador actually provided the resources for a community of Casseria Mediagua to build a new middle school. The school makes it possible for the students to continue their education past 6th grade, which is very hard to accomplish in rural El Salvador due to unsafe conditions and needing to travel long distances from home communities . We have just celebrated the first graduates and they will attend high school in the fall.
