Sarah Duggan || In their shoes.

I am so thankful for this opportunity to be able to travel to Mexico and get even just a glimpse at what it might be like to live in some of the situations these kids are born into.

Sarah Duggan || Together we are strong.

Family is important, and kids in this community and in many other developing countries children have a huge responsibility for taking care of each other.

The ability to lock your door every night makes the world of a difference for some people. Can you imagine what that change would bring to a family?

Sarah Duggan || Fun day.

Community craft day at a local school, where we set up painting, play dough, kite making, face paint, beading and tattoos for as many kids as we could. A little hectic but worth every second.

Sarah Duggan || Poverty and Wealth.

I always find it interesting to see what kind of things are different priorities in households living in poverty. But it was definitely a highlight for on our last build day the kids pulled me into their old house and sat me down to watch a classic disney movie with them.

Sarah Duggan || Heights.

What has become a family tradition in my home I decided to pass onto the families I met in Mexico by painting height boards with the kids handprints and measuring how tall they are so their parents can watch them grow over the future in their new houses.
