A Look Into the Esperanza Experience
Esperanza International provides cross-cultural service experiences that engage volunteers in work alongside marginalized families. We do this in partnership with Fundación Esperanza de México (FEM). By providing the tools necessary to build sustainable housing and improve one’s quality of life, FEM uses a holistic approach to development, including components of health, housing and education. See a snapshot of FEM’s evaluation that shows that program benefits that go way beyond housing.
We want to share with you a glimpse of what becoming an Esperanza volunteer will entail. These stories and experiences are from the volunteers and families who have made our program what it is today.
