THE STORY:

Esperanza International is a non profit organization which helps communities within Tijuana and Oaxaca, Mexico to build housing in resource poor areas. Families who enter the program save money towards the material costs for their homes while participating in the construction of their neighbors homes. After their homes are complete, many families choose to continue to help neighbors build their homes. The program both provides a more sustainable and a healthy living environment and helps to strengthen communities through the bonds it creates. (Any proceeds in excess of trip costs will be donated directly to Esperanza.)

The formation of community extends beyond Mexico and reaches across borders as volunteers are blessed with the opportunity to assist in the construction of the homes. Volunteers are granted an educating view into the lives of those in a different country and are able to grow exponentially with a new world view. Part of the Esperanza mission is to help cultivate global citizens that are better prepared for the complex challenges of an inter-dependent world.

This year will be my 11th trip with Esperanza and my 4th as a co-leader. Our group recruits from around the country and celebrates diversity by inviting members from all backgrounds and age groups. Please consider donating to help my husband and I attend this year's trip (or consider joining our group)!
