BENEFITING: Esperanza International
EVENT DATE: Jul 30, 2012
Esperanza International is a non-profit, charitable organization that is dedicated to empowering the poor by helping them bridge existing needs with available resources. By selecting and supporting a local family, Esperanza enables them to participate in the process, while promoting self sustaining responsible social development. The goal is to plant the seeds, provide assistance as requested, then step back and let the family implement the tools provided by Esperanza.
The main focus of a volunteer is to instigate initiative within the struggling family by providing a venue for more positive social development. The principal objective is community development through self-help housing projects in the neighborhoods. The all important ingredient in these projects is community involvement. Families participate in the decision-making, direction, and administration of loan funds as well as in the physical work of block-making for their home construction. Esperanza International and its valuable volunteers provide the seven distinct communities with the ability to become self-sustaining.
