More About Niños de Baja
Niños de Baja is located in the tiny town of Ejido El Porvenir, in the Guadalupe Valley (Valle de Guadalupe). Most of the people in Porvenir work at the vineyards, wineries, orchards, and farms that surround the town.
Porvenir is close to the border (50 miles) which makes travel from the U.S. relatively fast and inexpensive. Leaving from San Diego, people can easily drive to Niños, stay for a few hours, and drive back the same day.
Our mission at Porvenir is to share the love of Christ 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 then we added our children’s homes. Now, we also work throughout the community and have become an integral part of Porvenir. We converted our daycare into more housing for our Ninos in 2015 to better utilize our resources.
