The purpose of this project is to construct a pre-fabricated house at the newly formed Top Craft Development vocational education school in Wellington, Colorado and then ship this house to Juarez, Mexico for final construction. The house will provide shelter for a family in Mexico that needs of a place to live. We have an excellent relationship with Club Rotario Campestre, our partner Rotary Club in Juarez. This will be the second house our club has provided working with the Rotary Club in Juarez.
For more than 12 years, Rotary clubs have been supporting Club Rotario Campestre in
Juarez, Mexico by pre-fabricating homes locally and then sending these homes to Juarez for final construction. These homes are then gifted to families in need of housing. During these 12 years, a total of 42 homes have been shipped and assembled for needy families in Juarez.
Students in the construction trade will build the home in prefabricated units for assembly in Mexico. While the houses will ultimately end up in Juarez, Mexico, we consider this component a local project with the local students learning construction skills related to housing that can help them obtain skilled construction jobs. This project has been successfully implemented in Denver through the South Jeffco Rotary Club and that club will provide transportation to Mexico. We will use the money to purchase the material needed to build the home. Each home costs $2,400.00 to build and ship to Juarez.
We want to acknowledge a cash contribution from the Rotary Club of Estes Valley, Sunrise, who contributed funds to construct several houses. This is the first of these houses and the $800 club contribution for this project is part of the Estes Valley, Sunrise club donation.
Our club will coordinate the home construction with Top Craft Development vocational school in Wellington, CO and arrange for shipping to Juarez. This grant request is similar to P-2517 which was successfully completed.
