Hi my name is Anna and I have got the amazing opportunity to be able to take ten days out of my life and live among the less fortunate families in Tijuana in Mexico. It will hopefully be an amazing opportunity which will help a Mexican family have a 2 room house so please donate.

This trip came about through my youth group called Team 6. Our leader, Lizzy gave us the opportunity a while back because she had gone to the ReBuild Mexico project a few years before. As a youth group we thought it would be an amazing idea to experience this life changing opportunity. Hopefully it will make us aware of how fortunate we are and how we can help a family in need and make a difference in their lives.

We will be building the house from the foundations upwards putting a little prayer blessing on one of the hidden beams in the house. The house will be earthquake proof and quite stable. When it is finished we will hand over the keys and meet the family, give them presents and have a meal with them.

We will be going on the 18th August 2020 (when I’m 14) and the trip will cost £1900. This includes the flights, accommodation and buying some of the building materials. As Tijuana is in the desert we will be staying there and camping. We will have not much access to our technology and modern day life. it is very likely that we will go from having most things at our fingertips to almost nothing at all.

Thank you so much. Please donate
