When his money ran out, telecommunications student Mario had only two bad options: leave El Salvador or join a gang.

“I felt trapped,” Mario says. “I had been preparing myself for the future, but opportunities don’t come for everyone.”

Then he heard about ADRA’s microtunnel greenhouses project. “Learning these new techniques and farming skills showed me there is another way of life,” he says. “When somebody helps us, we have the chance to dream, to move ahead, to have a complete life.”

Now Mario is able to eat well, sell his diverse produce for a reasonable profit, and even hire local laborers to assist in the harvest…improving job security in his own neighborhood.
