Program areas at Project Mexico of the Orthodox Church

St. innocent orphanage rescues orphaned and abandoned boys and gives them a chance to live successful, productive lives. the boys receive a quality education, learn vocational skills, participate in sports, receive psychological counseling and are trained in the christian life. All of this, plus a structured and loving environment, allows a miraculous transformation to occur. Instead of fending for themselves on streets filled with crime, drugs, and prostitution, they now have the freedom to prepare for a bright future and to become givers, not takers. the mexican government has recognized st. innocent orphanage as the best in the state. We had over 70 boys in our programs and 20 boys were served at the orphanage in 2019.
St innocent - service works (sisw) is the premier service-learning program managing volunteer build projects and resources for non-profit organizations in north america. Sisw provides both a core curriculum and a service component to help volunteers become active, engaged, service leaders equipped to respond to various needs in their community. Through disaster response, international humanitarian aide, or community rehabilitation and reconstruction efforts, st. innocent service works gives volunteers the tools required to offer compassionate service to our fellow humans in need.
Since inception, Project Mexico has built over 394 homes for the poor in Mexico with the help of nearly 16,000 volunteers from 49 us states, many canadian provinces and 11 foreign countries. Many families endure squalid conditions in dirt-floor shacks pieced together with cardboard, old tarps and wooden pallets. With no protection from the elements, children and elderly often die during cold rainstorms. the lack of security in their flimsy shacks makes them easy victims for thieves. A Project Mexico home provides a concrete floor, solid walls and roof, a warm interior, and a locking door. This is a quantum leap forward for impoverished mexican families and gives them hope for the future. 22 homes were built and 49,500 volunteer hours were donated in 2019.
