Reyna, a single mother, has lived in Puerto Peñasco all of her life. She has two children, Jonathan who is seven and attending school, and Jose who is 17. Jose had been attending CET MAR high school, but had to quit to help his mother with the family’s expenses. Reyna is a taxi-driver and Jose works in in a tortilla shop. Reyna owns her taxi, but pays a daily as well as a weekly fee. In a steady week, she earns between $65 and $75. Reyna and her children are currently living with her father, but she has a land lot that she acquired while she was married to the children’s father. Reyna is unable to earn enough money to be able to build a home on her land lot on her own, so a house from 1MISSION would change their living situation considerably. Reyna would not only have a home of her own where she could raise her children with security and independence, but she would have an asset that could be potentially be a heritage for her future and for that of her children as well.
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.
