Life and Love in El Salvador

“El Salvador is a beautiful country with amazing people,” says Carolyn Conlon ’10 of her recent two-month trip to Latin America. “I learned so much about the church, the government, the people and the culture. The kids at the orphanage were so much fun. It surprised me how happy and optimistic they were even though many had suffered beyond belief.
Teaching English to 150 Salvadoran middle and high schoolers was one of the most challenging aspects of the trip—but also very rewarding. A highlight was working with Michael, a deaf 5-year-old. He is beginning to regain some of his hearing, which is miraculous under the circumstances, and is an amazing child.”
