Helping the Mexican people on the border is only half our work. The other half is providing purpose to the thousands of American volunteers who have crossed the border over the years to work with us in Agua Prieta, Mexico.
They return home more grateful, appreciative and happier global citizens. This experience helps reweave the moral fabric of our own communities here in America. We call it “Reciprocal Giving.” Everybody wins!
