    Many Ways to Give

    We believe that giving is an incredibly personal experience – and that’s why people choose to give in so many different ways. But deciding how to give can also be an overwhelming experience. We’ve compiled some of the most common ways that people choose to support refugees and the American Refugee Committee. Please use the information provided as a guide but know that at the American Refugee Committee we remain open to new and different ways of giving.

    Fun and games in Suchitoto

    Day 189

    Winning Big

    Changemakers 365 is all about doing the doable. It’s about opening our eyes to the opportunities to make an impact in a person’s life with relatively few resources – and making change each and every day of the year.

    In El Salvador

    The Centro Arte Para La Paz in Suchitoto, El Salvador is more than just an art center. It’s a place for people to gather – on the weekends, in the afternoon, with friends and with classmates. There are lots of things to do and to learn. But sometimes, just hanging out and playing games is meaningful, too.

    Having a safe space to spend time with friends and simply relax isn’t always the easiest thing to do in towns struggling with gang violence and healing from conflict.

    So for today, we’re helping students and adults alike have a different way to spend some time.

    Who doesn’t love board games? We picked up something for everyone – Cranium for the brainiacs, Pictionary for creative types, Jenga for thrill seekers, and Dominoes for something calm, and more!

    The games are something really simple.

    But they’re not activities that are easily accessed by a lot of the kids who live in and around Suchitoto. They’ll not only help young people learn a little differently, they’ll encourage time together spent in productive, fun ways. And that’s a win in our book.
