The Santa Marta Center is Helping LGBTIQ+ Young People in El Salvador


Your donation will provide comprehensive support and emergency shelter for LGBTIQ+ young adults in El Salvador facing homelessness and violence

Widespread homophobia and transphobia in El Salvador and the world leaves many LGBTIQ+ young adults in fear of being kicked out of their homes, facing domestic violence, and lacking a home to return to when deported. Poverty is common, especially among young adults. In El Salvador, many live with their parents through their 20s, and can be kicked out even as adults.

LGBTIQ+ people face violence and homelessness at higher rates than the general population. On the street, they are at greater risk of trafficking, sexual violence, and hate crimes. Help interrupt the vicious cycle that many young LGBTIQ+ people experience!

The Santa Marta Center provides immediate shelter, food, clothing, and psychological support to young people who have fled their homes, been kicked out, or have been deported.

100% of your donations will go to support the humanitarian work of the Santa Marta Center in El Salvador.

Your donations are tax-deductible, safe, secure and private. Rainbow World Fund is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. EIN# 94-3372560.
