Build a home in one day

In just one day, you can change a family’s life in the most profound way. You can give them shelter, security, and perhaps more importantly—you could give them hope. Corazon’s “Build a House in a Day” program takes a group of 40-50 dedicated volunteers into the marginalized communities of Tijuana and Tecate and builds an eligible family a home, all in just one day! Many families live in shacks and improvised shelters, often with no paved flooring. With your help, Corazon gives well deserving families a solid, substantial 16X20 foot home to shelter and protect their loved ones. This year we build one with an attached bathroom. Read More..

Working boys Center Quito, Ecuador

Eileen Factor from Long Beach Rotary Club to talk to us about ”The Working Boys Center”. Eileen has been in Rotary for 14 years she is married and has 3 kids and 6 grandchildren. She came to our meeting today to get support for a charity she is currently working on that helps young people in Equator. Eileen is trying to raise money through rotary grants to help the children have a better life. She showed us a short video describing how the children growing up in Equator have so many challenges and how this charity has helped so many. The Working Boys Center is a Catholic institution, committed to working boys and their families, founded with the objective of creating, developing and strengthening moral values by means of changes in attitudes and behavior, helped by programs of formation and social assistance. This process of change stresses ten important areas of life: loyalty, personal formation, family, religion, education, economy, work, recreation, health and housing.  Read More..
