The 2018 trips takes place in just south of Ensenada, Baja Mexico, and in the area of San Quintin. We are doing both trip for families and one for YSA. Most of the employment in the area is agricultural field work. The pay ranges from $10-$14/ day (yes a day.. not a typo) for a full 10 hour day. Surprisingly, food and utilities are about the same cost as in the U.S. The families in the area are very hard working, but it's difficult for anyone to thrive on $14/day? Our service will include:
Christmas Sub-for Santa to 70 families
Christmas toys (hand made) for an additional 1000 children
50 hygiene kits
2 months of food basics for 40 families
Home improvement / building project
