Tia Ana’s Sustainable Development is located in the El Salvadorian countryside, just outside of the capital city San Salvador. Currently, Tia Ana’s is located in the city of San Salvador, where there is little room for the children and a significant amount of violence and instability. In order to make the relocation of the orphanage feasible financially, a portion of the countryside landscape will contain a small hotel and numerous small dwellings nested in the tropical surroundings. By relocating the orphanage to the countryside, the children housed by Tia Ana will experience a safer and more stable environment and this sustainable development would be the home of a new kind of tourist destination in El Salvador.
