Long-term Desired Outcome
Compassionet Impact gives a hand-up so that families may move forward out of abject poverty towards achieving their potential.
- Moving from a cardboard and tarpaper shack to a real house transforms lives forever. Children are healthier and can stay in school while having a place to study. Parents are less stressed and are blessed with dignity and renewed hope. A simple concrete block house costs as little as $20,000, plus extra to secure the land, but results in an invaluable metamorphosis for families and future generations.
- Ensuring that young people, especially young women and girls, have the educational opportunities they need breaks the poverty cycle, reduces the rate of teenage pregnancies and marriages and offer hope for a better future.
- Canadian volunteers who work alongside our Mexican workers experience a life-changing event and gain new perspectives on issues around poverty, social justice and sharing our wealth.
