Thanks to kind donations and the hard work of 47 kind-hearted-change-makers the Osorio family will have a dry warm house to sleep in and build new memories. During the same weekend, the team participated in several activities. We visited and assisted in an orphanage for kids with disabilities and special needs, had dinner with the family whose house we built in 2019, and heard from Angel, the student whose education we are currently sponsoring. Visited Campo Esperanza, began discussions for a computer laboratory for the community, and visited and assisted with the care of abandoned animals at a local pet shelter.
Passion and Integrity are core values at People Thrust. Social responsibility is at the heart of both of these values, where People Thrust can positively impact people’s lives through the pairing of an individual’s talents, skills, and passion with the needs of others. To deliver on this promise, People Thrust has been partnering since 2019 with Baja Bound, a nonprofit that has been building homes for the working poor in Ensenada since 1993.
We spread love everywhere during this 3-day event! Besides being part of a house build for a family in need; we impacted other parts of the community.
We spent time and helped the staff at Gabriel’s House. This is a rehabilitation center for children with disabilities who have been orphaned, abandoned, or whose families are unable to take care of them.
We got to hear stories about students that are sponsored by Baja Educational Initiative and how being able to go to school has changed their lives.
We spent time at Campo Esperanza talking with people from the community and discussing how we can help them set up a computer lab. This community center has developed altruistic activities in a community of extreme poverty, Maneadero, and focuses on the integral development of Mixtec children, with the vision of transforming society, eradicating hunger, and raising educational rates.
We spent time at Los Adoptables. This is a transitional home shelter for dogs and cats. Los Adoptables’ vision is to give their animals a happy life. As a group, we took dogs for a walk because it’s important for dogs to socialize in order to be adopted and find a forever home. In addition, we helped clean the cages in the shelter and helped in any other way needed.
It doesn’t have to end here. We know of many other causes that could use YOUR help.

Here you can see photos of Angel. Angel is the oldest of the family and we met him when we built a house for his family in 2019. We have been sponsoring his education through Baja Educational Initiative for the past two years and continue to do so, and we were able to catch up with him in person during our recent house build. It is inspiring to see how Angel is committed to his education despite the obstacles he and his family face daily, and we are very proud of him!
