Experience the Mexico that few people know about! Work for these people is very sporadic, and therefore provides limited financial stability for their families. As a result of the need we saw in the town of Vicente Guerrero and the surrounding San Quintin valley communities, Live Different started working in Mexico in 2005. Many of the migrant families living here are forced to construct their small homes out of whatever they can find: scraps of wood, cardboard, and plastic. Thanks to the help of Live Different Builds volunteers, such as yourself, we have been able to build over 200 homes, 5 schools, and clinics in various communities in the area - and we have each been changed in the process.

In this community, our main project is building homes for families in need. By the time you leave to go home, you will have completely finished and furnished a house, made lifetime friends, and helped to change the future for a family that desperately needs it!
