Where:Rio Bravo, Mexico - 45 miles SE of McAllen, TX
When: Sunday, May 21 - Saturday, May 27
Many families in northern Mexico live in substandard housing. Our team would build one casita for a family - a 12' x 20' house constructed out of concrete blocks with a wood-framed, steel roof. These casitas greatly improve the quality of life for these families. No previous construction experience necessary-be ready to learn fast and work hard!
Cost: $200 per person
