For our first home we have partnered with Amor Ministries, a non-profit organization who has been building homes in Mexico for 36 years now, and has recently expanded to begin work in South Africa as well. This organization is near and dear to me because it was the inspiration behind the passion that has lead to For Blank. I have built 7 homes with this organization and they are an amazing organization touching many lives.
While most of their homes are built by groups of volunteers, they also have programs to employ locals to do all of the building, which has the added benefit of creating jobs! This is the program we have partnered with and we are excited to get our first home fully funded so we can share the faces of lives being changed.
I wanted to share a story written on Amor's Blog about one man's journey to support his family, and how the gift of an adequate home is a complete game-changer for the future of both himself and his family.
