The Lopes Limon family lives in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, Mexico. Peñasco, or “Rocky Point” is a small city on the Sea of Cortez where the main industries are fishing and tourism. A mere 100 KM from the US border, its beautiful sandy beaches make it a popular weekend and holiday destination for many living in the Phoenix area. Osmara and Osvaldo were both born and raised in Puerto Peñasco. They have been together for a year and Osmara is expecting a baby in the fall. Osvaldo works as a construction worker and Osmara has a job at a local convenience store. They were able to purchase a land lot eight months ago, but even with steady jobs, their income is too low to allow them to be able to build a house on their own. They currently are living with Osmara’s mother, where they share expenses and rent. Osvaldo and Osmara are a young healthy couple with dreams of a family and a future. A house from 1MISSION would give them a safe and decent home where they could live independently and work towards a brighter future. UPDATE: THE FAMILY IS EXCITED TO BE LIVING IN THEIR NEW HOME! THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
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.
