Rosario dreams of a peaceful, prosperous and secure life for her three children. But as a mother in El Salvador, she faces the risk of violence for herself and her children.

The three children attended World Vision’s Cultures of Peace program, which aims to stop the cycle of violence in Central America.

“I want them to be better; for them not to be like the previous generation but to be better and to be new," says Rosario.

She tears up as she talks about the positive changes the program helped to bring to Jonathan's life. “God changes people by using other people,” she says.
