Ana Maria and Isael are originally from Guerrero in southern Mexico. They have spent many years traveling from state to state working as agricultural laborers, but were unable to find somewhere that would be stable. They came to Puerto Peñasco two years ago, where Isael has found a job working in masonry with his brother. Ana Maria and Isael have been married for 14 years and have four young children. The children are now all attending school, but with all of the traveling they have done, the older ones are delayed by a couple of years. Ana is thankful that they have not experienced any bullying in school, as they are considerably older than their classmates. The family hopes to make Peñasco a permanent home and allow the children the opportunity to catch up on their education. The family is currently living in a room that Isael’s brother has loaned them. It is crowded for their whole family, and they have no privacy or independence there. They struggled to get access to a land lot, but now have the title and have begun making payments. A home from 1MISSION would give this family the stability and security that they need to put down roots and begin creating a sense of permanence and belonging.
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.
