Fundación Esperanza de México

Our partner, Fundación Esperanza de México, A.C., was founded in 1990 as a non-profit organization registered in Mexico with no religious or political affiliations.  Together, we harness volunteer sweat equity to stimulate sustainable development by building homes in solidarity with one another.

If you have come here to help me, you are wasting your time.
But if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.
- Lilla Watson, Indigenous Australian artist, activist and academic
