1/3 of Mexico’s population lacks of adequate housing and more than 2 million 250,000 live in an overcrowded space. (INEGI) Would you like to help to change this?

In this program, AMMAC volunteers have the opportunity to take part in housing projects for families that live in dire conditions, where the objective is to make improvements or construct complete houses, depending on what is needed in each particular case.

AMMAC takes on several cases every year mainly in Monterrey, México. Although, projects in other regions are an important part of the program. In these cases, the AMMAC team goes to rural areas where living conditions are very poor (like in the mountains of Zacatecas), and help build suitable living conditions for families.

An important element in this program consists in involving the families and other people in the community to help with the construction of the houses. This not only teaches them the way to improve their homes, but also helps create a united community among the neighbors.

Here is a little glimps into My house is your house

Living arrangements in Monterrey: Volunteers live in a hostel like setting on the second floor of AMMAC’s operational office. There is room for up to 12 people, divided into two rooms, typically one for men and the other for women.

Living arrangements in other regions: Depends on the opportunities there are, the AMMAC team may stay in municipal buildings, in houses, or tents, etc. Projects outside of Monterrey are typically 1 or 2-week long. Meals and sleeping arrangements will be provided.

Free time in Monterrey: There are a wide variety of cultural activities and entertainment in Monterrey, where volunteers have the freedom to explore. For example:  Las Grutas de García (caves), La Cola de Caballo (a local waterfall and hiking area), Paseo Santa Lucía (city center, boat ride), museum trips, among many other destinations. Previous international volunteers have also enrolled in local dance classes, such as salsa.
