SPREAD THE WORD
With a safe place to call home, children and families have a starting point to progress from surviving to thriving. Our program empowers groups of families to work together to build housing solutions.
Our areas of focus is located in Baja Mexico, in the little town of San Quintin and Ensenada. San Quintin is located about four hours south of Tijuana. The surrounding area is home to about 25,000 people. Most of whom spend 10+ hours a day working on large commercial farms that provide fresh produce to the United States. They work to grow strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers etc. It's common for children to start work in the fields at about age 14-16. They work their way up to earning a full adult wage of between $12 to $14 per day.. (yes per DAY). These are, honest, very hard working people, who give everything they have to help support their sweet families.
As one can imagine, $12-14/day is not enough to cover the basics of life. We have great respect for the hard work and miracles that they can create with what they earn. We are working to provide some simple items such as clothing, household items, shoes, coats and food.
Dates for the mission trip to Mexico are to be determined . Come and serve with us. and help provide change.
