Seven smiling Mexican children jumping in the air at Rancho Santa Marta

Mexico: Rancho Santa Marta

Rancho Santa Marta is a home for children and a special education school for the rural area of San Vicente, Baja California, Mexico.  The home is located 60 miles south of Ensenada and 130 miles south of San Diego.  Mountain View has had the privilege of developing relationships with the staff and children at this orphanage.  Every year our adult work parties have the life-changing experience of the Mexican culture while they serve the children and their home.  Click here for more information about our partnership with Rancho Santa Marta.

Our next trip is July 22 - 27, 2023!

To date they have built 20 homes.

Oikos (Household of faith)

Oikos was created to impact AIDS/HIV orphans in Kenya.  Rather than place orphaned children in an orphanage, the idea of Oikos is for the local family members to rally around the orphans.  As families choose to take the children into their homes, Oikos (and the partner organizations) supply the family with goods that will allow them to take care of their new larger family.  In this way the orphans grow up in a loving family atmosphere and they have a better chance at a bright future. 

Mountain View has had the chance to visit a village where Oikos is currently involved providing school clothes, food, and essentials to a home with four boys.  Funds have also been raised toward the drilling of a well for the Hope Station -- a place that provides food, clothing, education, and social activities.
