We learned a little bit about how the Salvadoran government has worked to improve their country since the end of their civil war in 1992. The Saca/Escobar administration, in particular has worked since 2004 in areas such as education, economic development, infrastructure and communications improvements, social welfare, and, as Escobar put it "empowering Salvadorans."

El Salvador is a special country for us and will only become more special in the months and years to come. What a treat to hear directly from one of its leaders about its progress in the last 15 years!
