Our immersion trips provide volunteers opportunities to build the framework for community in one of the poorest areas of Tijuana. Volunteers go on a week long mission to build homes and learn about the struggles of the local poverty.
For 15 years, we've built over 40 homes in the Tijuana neighborhood of Terrazas. This year, the Tijuana construction projects include 5 house structures for families in desperate need.
While participants pay for their travel and lodging, we are fundraising for construction material costs.
