So you're ready to help but don't know where to start. Maybe you're not ready to pick up your life up and move to a rural community in El Salvador ...


Don't fret! You DO have what it takes to make a difference!


There are as many ways to help as there are people willing to lend a hand. They involve differing degrees of time, money, energy, resources and skills. It all depends on what you have to offer and what you're comfortable with! The following list is just a jumping off point -- and keep in mind that new ideas and ways to be involved are always surfacing!








CRISPAZ's work in solidarity with the people of El Salvador depends on offerings of free will from peacemakers of all religions and none. Please be generous!

Fair trade is an approach to business and to development based on dialogue, transparency, and respect that seeks to create greater equity in the international trading system.


Fair trade supports farmers and craftspeople in developing countries who are socially and economically marginalized. These producers lack economic opportunity and often face steep hurdles in finding markets and customers for their goods.


Fair trade is much more than just trade. At the core of the fair trade model is a direct, cooperative, and in-depth relationship between buyers and sellers that keeps all of the principles of fair trade at the forefront.



Buy responsibly! Choosing fair trade products demonstrates your commitment to a fair wage and just labor conditions for the workers at all levels of production. Look for the fair trade label when buying, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, chocolate, fresh fruit, and other products!
