Mission Statement

Esperanza International cultivates global citizenship through international service experiences in working toward a better world.

We envision a world in which communities across borders work in solidarity toward a common dream of sustainable, dignified housing for all people.

Description

The actions of Esperanza International result in more than just the physical act of home construction. Esperanza focuses on creating a lasting, mutually beneficial relationship between volunteers from the United States and the Esperanza community in Mexico. This relationship is formed best by the unique volunteer experience that participants receive while working with Esperanza.

The volunteers interact with the community in a variety of unique ways that build a lasting impression of life in Mexico. The family makes lunch for the volunteers every workday, providing a shared-meal experience and a chance to participate in a little bit of daily life in the area.

Esperanza also works to assist individuals and communities that have the potential for becoming self-sustaining. By working shoulder-to-shoulder with those in need, Esperanza International has successfully forged long lasting relationships based on mutual respect and responsibility.
