What We Do

OSP builds long term relationships with Partner Communities in rural Berlín, Usulutan, El Salvador and then helps those communities better themselves through various projects.


Joining a delegation trip to El Salvador is the best way to really get to know the people in OSP’s Partner Communities and to learn about the work of OSP.
