The Sendeja Reyna 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. Crisanta and Victor have been married for 15 years and moved to Peñasco from Nogales, Sonora about 12 years ago. They have two teenage daughters, both of whom attend middle school. Victor works in construction, and Crisanta occasionally works with him. They have been able to acquire title to their land lot, but their limited income does not allow for them to be able to build a home on their own. They are currently living with Crisanta’s mother, but the home is crowded and there is little room or privacy for the girls. A home from 1MISSION would allow this family to live in a safe and decent home of their own where they could continue to work towards creating a better future for the whole family.
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.
