Building Communities Together

Orange Plaza Rotary members Kristen and Rae were happy to join more than 80 volunteers from the Rotary Clubs of San Juan Capistrano, Anaheim, Irvine, Santa Ana, Tustin-Santa Ana, Placentia and Yorba Linda Sunrise to build two homes in an area just outside the city of Tecate. With slabs and septic systems already in place, the teams quickly built the 16 x 20 wood frame homes, presenting keys to the house and other gifts to 2 worthy families at the end of the day.

Rotary Clubs partner regularly with Corazon, a locally-based nonprofit that works with impoverished communities in Baja California.  In addition to the construction program, Corazon provides vocational training and literacy education in Tijuana and Tecate.

We will be doing it again–contact us for more info!
