Originally from Mexico City, the Santos Fones family has lived in Puerto Peñasco for the past two years. They fled the area due to the violence and organized crime in the area. Marco Antonio says, “It was a permanent harassment.” He works maintaining a private home, and Nelly works one day a week as a maid. They both have very good sewing skills and Marco Antonio also has experience in plumbing and electrical work. Marco Antonio and Nelly have four children, Jaqueline and Ana Lucia both attend high school. Nelly Ailin and Marco are both in elementary school. The family is currently renting a home in San Rafael, but have been paying on a land lot in Brisas del Mar. Their limited income barely covers school expenses, rent, lot payments and daily living, leaving nothing left to be able to build a home on their own. A house from 1MISSION would give the family the economic stability of home ownership, and in Marco’s own words, “Provide a heritage for my children.”
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.
