A house for the poor

This family has very limited resources. Their house is made of sheets of metal that are in very poor condition and has a dirt floor. One of the beds is also in poor condition. The family is very large and includes the parents, six children and one grandson. The father is the breadwinner for the family and often there isn´t enough money and they only get to eat two meals a day. The oldest daughter is 16 and has a 6 month old baby and her boyfriend left her without giving any reason. Now her family is helping her since it is hard for her to find work due to the fact that she needs to take care of the baby, is a minor and doesn´t have an education. The only work that she could aspire to do is making tortillas, housekeeping or doing farm work.

 

The father does farm work on nearby plantations. Sometimes the work runs out at one plantation and he has to go to other plantations to find work. The mother doesn´t work because she takes care of all of the children. She says that none of her children have ever gone to school because the family can´t afford it. The parents also never studied because their parents only taught them farm work and housework.

 

The family is very excited about the idea of improving their home. The construction will start on Friday October 31, 2014 and the family is very appreciative of the support that the God´s Child Project is going to give them.
