A School is Born

All fourteen classes have been framed and are being insulated, drywalled and electrified.

The school has a projected start date of mid February 2018.

The western border between the U.S. and Mexico extends into the Pacific Ocean.
The Border Education Project, along with several other nonprofits including Project Mercy and International Relief Teams, are building a school in Fuentes del Valle, a Colonia in eastern Tijuana, located about halfway between Otay and Tecate. Most of the residents are migrants from central Mexico who come to the border area for the higher paying jobs. The schools in the surrounding areas are full and can’t accept more students. As a result, about seventy children in Fuentes del Valle cannot and do not attend school. This is a situation that can’t be allowed to continue so your help is desperately needed. DONATE
