    Making the Apopa youth center a more versatile space

    Day 47

    Office Supplies for Girls and Guys

    ¡Buenos días! Greetings from the Changemakers 365 team in El Salvador, where we’re busy working with the community in Apopa to create safe spaces by way of a youth innovation lab.

    The space already offers a lot of opportunities to the youth of the neighborhood—people play soccer out back, there’s a small choreographed dance class for women, and other men who break dance. But they’re still missing some basic supplies they need to complete the lab.


    To help remedy some of this, we got them office supplies—post it notes, staplers, pens, pencils, tape, paper clips, you name it!

    If you’d like to support doing the doable and making change each and every day, make a donation to fund Changemakers 365.

     

    Meet Sam!

    Sam developed an interest in forced displacement, food insecurity, and identity while working on her master’s degree. She’s now using this knowledge to support Changemakers 365 across our country programs. When she’s not off on a work trip, she’s busy fermenting beverages, training for half marathons, or listening to podcasts at her home in Minneapolis.
