EStart — Creating better lives and stronger opportunities for people in El Salvador
EStart is a non-profit organization created to help Salvadorian families live better lives. 100% of donations to the EStart Foundation go towards one of three endeavours: (1) providing basic essentials, (2) micro-financing for small businesses, or (3) community support projects. Our vision is to breakdown the social, educational and economic barriers in El Salvador so that all children, women and men can strive to achieve security and prosperity.
