Salvadoran Kids Depict Hopes and Fears Through Art
This month, Cristosal hosted a workshop with Salvadoran children where kids explored the answers to questions about their lives and communities through painting.
- What do you like about your family?
- What do you like about your community?
- What does insecurity/a lack of safety mean to you?
- What do you want to do when you grow up?
10-year-old Gabriela* loves her mom.
Erick's* favorite thing about his family is that they care for him.
Vanessa's* favorite thing about her community is the soccer field by her house.
Alexis*, age nine, associates the feeling of insecurity with a robbery.
Insecurity makes Mario*, age eleven, think of the highway on the border of his community.
Benita*, age 8, wants to be a lawyer when she grows up.
Ernesto*, age 10, would like to be an accountant when he grows up.
*Names have been changed for security reasons
