Shasta College Students Travel to El Salvador

We are excited to share pictures and stories from the Shasta College student group that traveled to El Salvador, in part supported by Northstate Women’s Health Network and our supporters! Enjoy the photos of the students’ work and experience in the community, at local health clinics and organizations and in local homes.

A student, writing about her experience on this trip:

“I was talking to a friend in the U.S. a few days after we all left El Salvador; he asked how it was and all of that, and I gave him just a few brief sentences about how incredible it was to be back, how much I love being there, loved the people I met (both from El Salvador and the United States), so on and so forth… and all he said in reply was, so simply, “So El Salvador is home, then.” And I realized in that moment that, yes, in a way, it has become a home for me. I have had some of the most extraordinary moments in that nation, developed some of the most incredible connections, had some of the most meaningful conversations. I know that I will never write a reflection paper that can truly capture that; I will never be able to explain to others why I cannot stay away (and, furthermore, why I do not want to). All that I can do now is figure out how El Salvador and Central America fits into my future, if I am truly called to be there, and in what regard. Here goes.

My cup has been filled. Gracias, El Salvador.”
