Originally from Michoacan, Miguel moved to Puerto Peñasco 12 years ago. Laura has lived there since she was a young girl. They have been married for nine years and have two young girls, eight year old Aracelli and Alejandra who is two. Miguel works in the kitchen of a local hotel resort and Laura has a job at a small grocery store. Their combined incomes are still very small, and barely cover their basic needs. A house from 1MISSION would give this young family a safe and decent home they could call their own, and allow them 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.
