CHA Vocational Training Center - A gift of opportunities
Organized by: Jesus Hiraldo
After a missionary trip in 2013, I was deeply touched while visiting Casa Hogar Alegre, an orphanage in Chiapas, Mexico. The youth and teenagers who live at the Orphanage, have been abused and abandoned by both their families and by society. Many of them were brought to the orphanage when they were younger after being found living in such heart-shattering situations as the pits of the city dump or in pigpens with animals. Sometimes they learn that their parents have died, other times they find out that their family members have gone away and never came back.
Together with a group of friends, I have now embarked on a journey to raise the necessary resources to build a vocational training center (VTC) for this orphanage. 100% of the resources obtained through this fundraising effort will go towards the construction of Casa Hogar Alegre Vocational Training Center, a technical training center which will provide students with business skills and the opportunity to obtain a certification in areas such as carpentry, mechanics, plumbing and electricity. In turn, participants will be prepared to find decent jobs, earn appropriate incomes and thus be able to integrate back into society.
Here is the approved construction plan:
1st, Stage: Construction of stone wall that will serve to contain the fill and foundation base construction of the workshop. Running time: 6 weeks
2nd STAGE: Fill and firm ground with footings for the fence. Running time: 4 weeks
3rd, Stage: Construction of block walls and pillars, all in apparent finish, leaving the tops ready for the roof. Running time: 3 weeks
4th STAGE: Construction and placement of roof cover (zintro sheets), R 72, Cal 26, supported on Mon-ten 10 “ cal 10 and Mon-ten 4" Cal 14. Running time: 1 week
5th STAGE: Construction of front drainage to receive the water and bring it to the street as well as exterior construction firm. Running time: 2 weeks
6th, STAGE: Installation of four gates of metal curtain Automated mechanism for easy opening and closing entries. Running time: 2 weeks
7th, STAGE: Installation of pipelines and power lines in three phases with a control panel and power in different areas of the building. Execution time 2 weeks
Total funding needed: $57,250 USD
Since our team at Casa Hogar Alegre Orphanage has worked together with federal and local agencies to secure additional resources, access to those resources are conditional to our team achieving our fundraising goals. Help us achieve the $57,250 USD objective. We trust that together with your support we will make these students' dream a reality.
