THE STORY:

The Fanger family has been traveling to Tijuana for many summers with the Tijuana Ministry.  Our volunteers build the framework for community in one of the poorest areas of Tijuana. We go on a week long mission to build homes and learn about the struggles of the local poverty.

Construction
For 12 years, we've built over 25 homes in the Tijuana neighborhood of Terrazas.  Frank has been the lead foreman in many of the home builds.  This year, the Tijuana construction projects include 7 house structures for families in desperate need.  While the participants pay for their travel and lodging, we are fundraising for construction material costs.  

  • $7,000 - Entire New Home for a Family in Desparate Need

Mother's Program
For the past few years, Kathy has been leading the mother’s program in Tijuana to build relationships and community. Many of the families in this Tijuana community are from diverse places, and may not know each other well. The mother’s program was developed to help build a sense of community among the mothers. In addition to craft projects, the mother’s program provides a place for heartfelt discussions on family life, religion, nutrition, finance, and relationships.

  • Donations will go toward care packages for local mothers in Tijuana.  In the past these have included food items, hygienic products like toothbrushes, shampoo, crafting tools, and household items. 

Children's Programs
Brian has led the children’s program which is centered on providing children in the area with safe, fun activities, as well as some educational content and catechism. We also provided the children with a snack each day, and some donated toys at the end of the week. Over 200 children attended last year's week long camp.

  • Donations will go toward 200 brown bag lunches for 200 local Tijuana children.  This item includes 200 PB&J sandwiches (some variants) 200 Capri Suns, 200 CCCs, and 200 apples.  We provide lunches for the local children 4 days of the week. **CCCs: Chocolate Chip Cookies!

Social Justice
We learn about local conditions and interact and gain understanding of the local residents. As part of this, we visited various sites like the memorial at the US/Mexican Border; and Casa del Migrante, a homeless shelter for migrants and recently deported men; an AIDS hospice; and a school for special needs children that we help finish so they could open; and the local clinic. We also attend hosted discussions with local families.

Thank you in advanced for your generous support for our program! Your donation will make a difference!
