Jose Luis was born in Mexicali where he lived his younger years, and finished school up to the third grade. He then lived in Phoenix for close to 18 years where he worked as an agricultural laborer and for a time in a water bed factory. He has never been married, but he does have a son that he is not in contact with. He also has brothers living in the US, but isn’t in contact with them either. When he lived in the US, his parents were living in Sonoyta and he would travel between there and Phoenix to care for them. When they passed away he stayed and worked for a while in Sonoyta. During that time, his papers expired and he was unable to return to the US. He decided to move to Puerto Peñasco where he has lived for the past 12 years. Jose supports himself by playing his accordion at the Malecón and in various restaurants. His income is unpredictable and dependent on the tourist season. He had been paying rent in town, but two months ago, he moved out to his land lot where he has built a room for cooking and living using scraps of salvaged material, he uses an old truck for his sleeping quarters. A house from 1MISSION would give Jose a safe and decent place where he can live comfortably and focus his limited resources on meeting his daily needs, and on a more secure future.
Our Earning by Learning initiative gives families the opportunity to build at their own capacity while at the same time, furthering sustainable development in their own community. Families can participate in classes centered on home budgeting, gardening, sewing, basic education and much more. Families also become connected with their communities by participating in projects such as building each other’s homes, cleaning their neighborhoods, and serving in local schools and churches. This sustainable approach results in community development that multiplies from neighbor to neighbor. By participating in their community, families not only work together, but they feel the support of their neighbors and develop relationships of trust and shared burdens.
