Strong & Capable on International Women’s Day

El Salvador Reported by Convoy of Hope

“You are capable of doing anything you want.” These were Angela’s father’s last words to her. Angela had always told her father she wanted to own her own store. As she grew older, her dream of running her own business fell to the wayside. In her family’s darkest time, they started going to church.

At church, Angela connected with Convoy of Hope and joined the Women’s Empowerment program. Now, Angela runs a successful store, where she sells school supplies. She is a provider for her family and an example to her daughters, who dream of running their own businesses in the future. Check out more of Angela’s story in the video.


Today, we’re celebrating #Juneteenth! The holiday celebrates African American history and culture, and the end of slavery on June 19, 1865. Juneteenth not only calls us to reflect on history, but also the continued work ahead.
