Hi Family and Friends, We're going to Tijuana again this summer! This year it's Francis, Beth and Daniel going with our nephew/cousin Aidan. We are building 5 houses ! They will be the same floorplan as the last 2 years with a main living area, a larger bedroom for the parents, two smaller bedrooms for the children, a bathroom, and two loft areas over the bedrooms. We love going down to help with this project. It's hard work but very rewarding.
Our group also runs a children's program and a mother's program during the day to build community and provide a safe, fun and educational experience for everyone. By the end of the week, when word of our program spreads through the neighborhood, we will have provided over 200 children with craft activities, fun games and lunch with the volunteers. It's amazing!
While we pay for our travel and lodging expenses, we are fundraising to cover the construction material costs. To give you an idea of our needs:
