Juan Carlos is originally from Tacoma Colima but has lived in Puerto Peñasco for the past 15 years. He has worked in construction in the past and currently works a seafood plant cooling the fish and cleaning and organizing the plant. Beatirz has lived in Peñasco all of her life. She works at the Malecón selling the product from the plant where Juan works. Juan and Beatriz have been together for six years. They have been unable to have children and ask for prayers that they would be blessed by a child. They are currently renting a home, but have had title to their land lot for two years. Their combined salary covers their living expenses and rent, but they have been unable to earn enough to be able to build a house on their own. A house from 1MISSION would allow them to be much more stable economically. They would be free from their rent payment and be able to focus their limited resources on meeting their daily needs and working towards a better 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.
