Programa Velasco

educating and empowering children and families


Programa Velasco is a U.S. registered 501 (c) (3) tax exempt organization that seeks to educate and empower families and children who are enrolled in Centro Hogar, a pre-school within Asociación Nuevo Amanecer de El Salvador (New Dawn Association of El Salvador), which is located just outside of San Salvador in the village of San Ramon, Mejicanos.



  • Our leadership team in the child development center: Annie Boyd, Fatima Villamariona, Erica Olson, and Veronica Navarro
  • Glendy, one of the participants in the Women´s Empowerment Project, runs into two of the mentors, Juanita and Anita, while selling vegetables in San Ramon.
  • One of Programa Velasco´s major donors, Agnieszka Winkler, and her grandson, Nick, came to visit us in El Salvador in June and painted a mural about children´s rights with a local artist and friend, Fredy Granillo.
  • Parents of the children in Kinder 5 learn about the teaching methodology applied in the classroom by participating in a hands-on activity and discover how learning can be fun!
  • Children learn about different modes of transportation with the help of student-teachers from the University of Central America
  • Cesar, one of the coordinators of the Women´s Empowerment Project, makes home visits to assist the women in the financial administration of their businesses.
