Ensenada's Mexico has some of the worlds most poor and vulnerable adults and Young children. Many of the poorest families there live in nothing more than a few cardboard boxes, they have placed together for shelter.
M10 is a unique and amazing charity that works as a life skills training course for young people aged between 16-25, but it then also partners with other charities so that young people can experience volunteerism and make a hands on difference in this world using those skills. After a year of training volunteers are flown out to Mexico to partake in relief work. The mission itself involves building a home for one of these families, preparing and providing food and hygiene packs for homeless individuals. Supporting the work in rehabilitation centres and orphanages. Running sporting events and playing with the children and light construction work, painting, building furniture (to name but a few)
I am passionate about Olivia seeing what life is really like out there, and how she/we can truly make a difference. I am also crazy passionate to be of help to these people in any which way I can.
My mum was orphaned at an extremely young age, which had such a monumental effect on my own upbringing. I was a mess in my teens (Not necessarily because my mum was orphaned lol) alcohol and drugs almost ruined my life and that of my family's. By the grace of God and the help of many, I am on my feet living a life I now love. I want to be real hands and feet, making a change for others too. I plan to fund some of this trip myself, but I also need your help, so please please give were you can and watch this space for events you can get involved in and other ways you can give too.
