Takin Back was established in 2009 with the mission of working with children and youth in the country of El Salvador. Our first step was through our sponsorship program. With a focus on education, we were able to fund the schooling of 13 students, and had the honor of watching them all graduate in the fall of 2014. During our first team trip in the summer of 2013, we had the opportunity to share the gospel and provide 500 pairs of shoes in local communities we had developed relationships with over the years. During the past six years, we have seen God allow our small nonprofit be a part of amazing stories that display His faithfulness in the lives of the people of El Salvador.
We are grateful God is allowing us to continue this adventure as we launch our Mentorship Program this year. While learning about the needs of El Salvadorans throughout the years, we believe that mentorship is one of the most effective ways to foster positive change and long-term transformation in communities. Our goal is to walk alongside the people of El Salvador as they become active members of society and further development in their communities. Our hope is that, through education, mentorship and the “Love Initiative,” we will train up strong Godly leadership that will change the atmosphere around them, and be a part of creating a better future for their country. Takin Back’s passion is simple, we want to show Christ's LOVE WITH ACTION.
"Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth" -1 John 3:18
