Niños de Baja is located in the tiny town of Ejido El Porvenir, in the Guadalupe Valley (Valle de Guadalupe). Most people in El Porvenir work at the vineyards, wineries, orchards, and farms surrounding the town.
El Porvenir is near the border (50 miles), making travel from the U.S. relatively fast and inexpensive. Leaving from San Diego, people can quickly drive to Niños, stay for a few hours, and drive back the same day.
Our mission is to share Christ’s love by serving children in Baja California, Mexico. But, we find that as we serve, we are also blessed. Many people come to Niños throughout the year to help. Church mission teams, interns, family groups, retirees, couples, singles – all kinds of people come for a few days, weeks, or months. Many of these folks develop an ongoing relationship with us and return year after year. Over and over, they tell us that being here has changed their lives.
Each year, our work here evolves. We began with a daycare center and added our children’s homes. We also work throughout the community and have become an integral part of El Porvenir.
