The background of the poster contains a landscape with a field of rolling hills at the horizon line. A helicopter flies over a cloud of smoke billowing up from the ground in the distance at center left.

Text in a black band across the bottom of the page reads: "For More Information Please Contact: / Building with the Voiceless of El Salvador" and contains contact information for the National Office in Washington, D.C. and the Local Contact in Los Angeles, California.Building with the Voiceless of El Salvador (BVES) was an international support campaign that promoted the self-development of rural and urban communities.
