Most children in El Salvador are faced with poverty, an unsanitary environment, disease and gang violence. And Salvadoran-American artist Nicolas Shi portrays them staring at an uncertain future in his painting En el umbral del destino. “If the world is concerned with economic growth, gender equality and justice, any efforts should include health, safety and educational programs targeted to underprivileged children”, says Shi.
