Take a Trip to Change Lives!
DATE: May 25- June 2, 2019
LOCATION: Nayarit, Mexico
Join this trip and help Mexican families living in cramped, substandard housing gain access to safer, healthier housing solutions!
In Mexico, more than 50% of the population live in conditions of poverty and many lack the means to buy or build adequate housing. In Nayarit alone, 121,000 people live in poverty and 227,000 don’t have access to electricity, drinkable water, or sewer systems. Habitat for Humanity Mexico partners with future homeowners to build homes designed for each family’s needs with separate living spaces, a kitchen and a bathroom.
You’ll be staying in double-occupancy rooms at a nearby hotel where breakfast and dinner will be provided. Lunches will be served on the build site. Work site tasks typically include moving and compacting dirt, mixing concrete and mortar, painting walls or cleaning up the construction sites. Off the build site you’ll have the opportunity to relax on the beach or interact with the local community through shared meals and traditional handcrafts!
PROGRAM COST: $2,065
This covers a significant donation to Habitat for Humanity’s work building safe, decent housing, as well as your accommodations, meals, in-country transportation, travel-medical insurance, and cultural activities. (Airfare and entry/exit fees are not included.) The full program cost is tax-deductible, in most cases.
