Living Hope International works continually to improve the quality of services we provide to the children of Esperanza Viva Youth Homes and our other ministries in Mexico. For that reason we always have a list of projects that require effort, focus, and funding. We invite you to check out our list of current projects to see how God would lead you to help us to complete them.
Equipping the Community Center
The Community Center will be the heart of the Living Hope Community campus. It will serve as the dining hall for the children and staff of Esperanza Viva Youth Home (EV), students of La Viña ministry school, and short-term missions visitors, as well as a general, meeting area for large gatherings for EV and the Integral Education Center on-site school. In the near future, we plan to start regular worship meetings in the Community Center also. The tables and chairs for the children’s cafeteria will also be used for these special events.
Project Cost: $90,000
Equipping the Industrial Kitchen
The industrial kitchen will plan and prepare meals to be shared among the children, staff, ministry school students, and shortterm
missions visitors. We need to equip the kitchen with a six-burner stove with oven, a walk-in refrigeration unit, an industrial
dishwasher, heavy-duty pots and pans, sinks and tables for food preparation and cleanup, food service stations and heavy-duty
service items, and storage and shelving units. The current, provisional kitchen supplies are now quite old and have been in daily
use for preparing three meals a day for more than 100 people.
Project Cost: $75,000
Industrial Laundromat Equipment
Washing and drying clothes for more than 100 people, including the children of Esperanza Viva Youth Home, their live-in supervisors, and the students of La Viña Practical Ministry Training Center is a big job! Our current, industrial washers and dryers are old and in constant need of repair. It is urgent that we acquire two new, industrial washers and two new, industrial dryers to provide this very necessary service for the children and their caregivers.
Project Cost: $40,000
The round-the-clock supervisors who care for the children live full-time in the dorm rooms with the kids. They sacrifice the comforts of their own homes to provide for those less fortunate. We would like to make their housing situations a little more comfortable by adding small kitchenettes in each of the wings of the dormitory, so that the supervisors can prepare themselves toast, have their own yogurt for breakfast or snacking, etc. Our staff is our gold, and we want them to feel at home in their service to the children.
Project Cost: $8,000
Storage space at the Living Hope Community is very limited, and we need to increase available storage space to make the most of the in-kind donations we receive for the children´s use. Each child currently has a small cupboard area to store all of their clothes, shoes, and personal belongings. Construction of closets in the hallways of the children´s dormitory will greatly increase storage space for linens, out-of-season clothes, and cleaning supplies.
Project Cost: $11,600
