Mexico house build

When: Friday May 4- Sunday May 6
7a Friday- 6p Sunday

Where: Ensenada, Mexico - by way of San Diego

How: 20-30 volunteers come together to unite financial resources, time, energy and hearts

What/why: We'll be going to Maneadero, Mexico to build a house from the ground up. Families are currently living with dirt for floors, pallets for walls, and a tarp for roofs.

Who: Me, Mali Woods, 36 year old San Diego resident whose life passion is being a voice for the voiceless and contributing my energy, heart, and soul wherever I can. And Baja Bound 

Every donation helps and goes towards:

- An experienced staff that provides logistics, set-up, guidance and interpreters.
- Construction materials, equipment, and every other needed element to build a 16 X 20 insulated home on a concrete slab with electrical wiring.
- Service programs and outreach in the community and local orphanage.

1) For those interested in joining us, the trip is very SAFE. Accommodations for the weekend are in a gated community. Your stay, all meals and expenses are covered in your $300 donation. (Depending on fundraising - participants may receive cash back)

2) The drive is to Ensenada is 2.5 hours from San Diego. It is safe, on paved roads. When the participants are confirmed, I will work with everyone to arrange transportation, carpools, etc.

3) Everyone will have an opportunity to build the home, volunteer at the orphanage, and support with the community programs.

4) No experience is necessary! All you need is a big heart and a positive attitude!

5) You're welcome to stay for all or part of the build weekend, whatever works best with your schedule.
