Unfortunately, the long-term solution to poverty in Baja California is complex and will only come with time. On the bright side, however, there is much that can be done today to work toward a better future.
Simple, Long-Term Support
When it comes down to it, the destitute populations of Baja California need only one thing — the power to improve their situation. That power depends on access to basic necessities and education. Without food, shelter or common medical care, these people will never be able to rise above their circumstances. With it, they can achieve great things.
This is where Aid for Baja California comes in.
ABC brings hope to the people of Baja California through two major programs. The result of our efforts is a healthy, positive outlook on life for Baja families and “graduates” of local orphanages.
We Support Orphanages
ABC partners with orphanages in Baja California to help children who have been left without parents. ABC works with our supporters in “upper” California and other regions of the United States to raise money for the children, increase awareness, and ensure Baja orphans get what they need to grow up healthy, strong, and cared for.
Currently, ABC is supporting Rancho Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, and La Morita Mission in La Morita, Mexico. We provide clothing, furniture, utensils, building materials, and tools.
We Award Scholarships
Every year, ABC receives scholarship requests from organizations in Baja California. We evaluate these requests and award financial scholarships to eligible students. Scholarships pay for tuition, allowing disadvantaged Baja youth to pursue education and improve their communities.
We have specifically provided extensive support to the Colegio Jeanne Chezard, an elementary school in Tijuana, Baja California. ABC funds have provided classroom furniture, blackboards, paper, pencils, and other school supplies.
