Niños de Baja

mexicoNiños de Baja is a Christian-outreach ministry that serves children in Baja  California, Mexico.  We are 50 miles south of San  Diego in El Porvenir, which is in the Guadalupe Valley.  Called the “Napa” of Mexico, the valley is home to vineyards, wineries, olive orchards and farms.  El Porvenir is a quiet farm town, and the people of El Porvenir provide farm labor for the valley.

In El Porvenir, Niños de Baja has provided:

  • A children’s home for kids who are orphaned, abused or abandoned
  • A daycare center for local working moms and migrant farm families
  • Employment opportunities at our children’s home and daycare center

Assistance to the community including:

  • An addition to the town library
  • A one-room school & a multi-purpose building for the primary school
  • Playground equipment for both schools
  • Supplies & books for the library & schools
  • A variety of outreach programs including
    • Vacation Bible School during the summer
    • Summer sports & crafts at the park
    • Assistance in upgrading or repairing homes
    • Regular distributions of clothing & household items
    • Food for the needy
    • “Shoebox” gifts & Spanish-language Bibles for kids at Christmas

For churches and individuals in the U.S., we offer the opportunity to:
