Goal: $7,500 or $75 per student
About this Mission Project
Centro Pedagogico Didaque is a Baptist grade school ministry outreach of Mount Horeb Baptist Church in Tijuana, Mexico. Located in one of the poorest and most dangerous areas of the city, the school focuses on reaching barrio children who are disabled, disadvantaged or emotionally disturbed and thus unable to attend other schools.
For many students, the school is their first time experiencing God’s love, and it provides an escape from difficult home environments.
Many former students have gone on to middle and high schools, and are far better prepared to get out of the cycle of poverty and to be future leaders in their communities. The more severely disabled students have gained dignity and hope for the future due to their positive experiences at school.
$75 will provide one child with the uniform and books they need to attend the Baptist school.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $75 per student for 100 students in the next school year. Funds will pay for books and uniforms.
The purpose of this mission project is to help provide an education for children who otherwise would not have the opportunity.
This project will be managed by Patti Long, IM missionary to Tijuana. It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall education of the community.
