Mexico

We believe every human being is hardwired with a desire to serve but they just don’t know how. We at Forgotten People have created the venue with the only skills required are willing hands and a willing heart. The joy on the faces of children seeing their new school or a family collecting the keys to their own home can only be matched by those of the build team. It’s a week of hard work but every day we go to bed with the feeling of great satisfaction knowing we are making a difference.  Mexico is a country rich with life and community and we have the distinct opportunity to partner with them to see their communities rise from poverty and flourish to a new life and a new future.

School Build

When we started building in 2012, you could ask children what they wanted to be when they grow up and they had no answer. We asked again recently with a little girl responding “ I  want to be a doctor ”.  In the time we’ve been there, we have seen a shift in children realizing their potential because of education.  It is a privilege to help create the learning environment for this to happen!

House Build

These houses are built on land owned by the families we build for. It provides a refuge and security for families who previously lived in plastic or cardboard or a 8x9 concrete squares. It gives them hope finally having a place to call their own. We build the house and they make it home.

Stats

Migrant workers have come over 2000 miles for a “promised land” of homes and jobs.

Housing: 75% of the migrant workers have no electricity, running water, and use a make-shift outhouse.

Employment: A steady job means approx. $10/day for a 10 hour day.

Food Aid: There are approximately 1,947 children in the region and 1,162 of them suffer from some level of malnutrition.


Give

Migrant workers, and their families, struggle with housing, employment, and with food sources. With your help they can get the resources they need to lift their families out of poverty.
