SAL, meaning both ‘SALT’ and ‘GET OUT’ in Spanish, is a project created by Scripture Union with the goal to assist local churches in developing an evangelisation and social aid program in their contexts. It is a tool to help them carry out the commandment that Jesus gives us: Go therefore and teach all nations.
SAL is focused on kids and teenagers that live in complicated social conditions, with the risk of exclusion from society. Most of them have never heard about Jesus, and this is the main goal of the project: to give them the opportunity to know our Saviour.
The program comprises of different activities that can be carried out in the streets. These activities are engaging in order to encourage young people to participate: e.g. theatre, songs, dance, or games. Through them, the Gospel is clearly presented. There is also a program dedicated to the parents or other family members that come along with their kids.
Both programs are intended to meet the young people’s spiritual needs, but also to improve their difficult social situations.
