Social responsibilityHunfeld Services supports two projects in El Salvador.
Nuestros Pequeños HermanosThis is a home for children that was established in 1999 in the western part of El Salvador. Over 300 children and young adults live at the main site while university students live in student homes in Santa Ana. The NPH property includes a pre-school through secondary school, clinic, administrative offices, chapel, vocational workshops, farm and gardens, dining room and kitchen; houses for the boys, girls and the babies.
TaquilloTaquillo is the name of a village in the central part of El Salvador. This programme provides youths with help and financial assistance in the form of grants for two to three years of education at a secondary school where they can obtain the necessary qualifications to study at a technical college or university or for some form of vocational training.
An international team of Salvadorians, Germans and Austrians is in charge of running the programme.
Dr. Stefanie Kainzbauer, who set up the project, is responsible for the design of the educational programme along with the local project leaders in El Salvador. She studied at the “Universidad Centroamericana José Simeón Cañas” Jesuit University of El Salvador, which is in fact Miriam Hunfeld’s alma mater.
