Building a home

 

Last year, the Silicon Valley Chapter of WTFC went to Mexico to build a house for a family. Over the course of four days, we traveled down to Tijuana, built a home, and settled a family in it. This year, we join 10 families from Aug. 12th– 15th to make this house a reality for a family.

 

Our Plan

  • We take our sleeping bags and staying at an orphanage approx. 10 minute drive from the construction location.

  • All lodging, food, and local transportation costs are shared among all the participants.

  • In 4 days, we complete building the entire house from cutting wood, building walls, painting, decorating, and furnishing!

  • The best part is the giant smile on the faces of the family and the children!

  • In our free time, we play cards and sports (soccer or basketball) with kids from the nearby orphanage, and use our acquired Spanish skills to communicate with the locals in Tijuana.

HELP US REACH OUR GOAL.
