A group of young people from Aston Clinton Baptist Church Youth Group are volunteering to build a house for a homeless family living in absolute poverty in Mexico, alongside the charity Urban Saints. They will spend 11 days in Tijuana, northern Mexico, during the Easter Holidays in 2016 working as a team to construct a basic two room dwelling with a concrete base. The family will be chosen and vetted by the US charity AMOR who have been working with the homeless people in Mexican communities for over 30 years.
Around 45% of all Mexicans live in poverty, meaning they have less than the basic needs of daily living, many living on less than $1 a day. A lot of these live in the north, near Tijuana, just one hour across the border from the USA.
Our group needs to raise £1,400 each, in order to build the house from scratch, using only hand tools. While they build the house, they will live in tents with no running water and only basic supplies, in order to understand how a Mexican family lives year round. At the end of the build, they will hand the keys to the new house over to the actual family who will be living there.
As well as Youth Cafe and Rock, there is also Revive, Explore, Zeal and Escape. To find out more about what goes on at these events, click here.
This is the second mission trip to Mexico that some of the team have been on. If you would like to see some details of their last trip, watch this youtube clip
