The Salvadoran Association for Rural Health (ASAPROSAR) is a multi-service non-governmental community service organization based in Santa Ana, El Salvador.

It was founded in 1986 by Dr. Vicky Guzman, a Salvadoran doctor. ASAPROSAR is staffed by Salvadoran physicians, social workers, health promoters, teachers, and other professional outreach workers.

The Barefoot Angels Program seeks to eradicate high-risk child labor primarily in Santa Ana’s bus terminal marketplace and municipal city dump.

  • Many boys and girlsĀ (agesĀ 6-18) who are forced to work in these areas become victims of gang associations, prostitution, and related violence.
  • ASAPROSAR offers the youth a program of physical and psychological health and quality educational training. It is the only alternative for youth living and working in the streets and on the margins of western Salvadoran society.

Members of First Parish lead an annual Learn and Serve Volunteer Trip.

  • The purpose of the trip is to build relationships and encourage cross-cultural understanding.
  • Create opportunities for individuals to use their talents and interests in partnership with Salvadorans to work on projects that benefit local communities.
  • Visitors gain knowledge about another culture, experience personal growth and learn that they can make the world a better place.
  • Participants need not be members of First Parish Church.
