Habitat for Humanity Mexico is a civil society organisation that develops projects aimed at solving the housing problem, particularly for low-income families. Housing construction is carried out in several indigenous rural communities located in the border area and in the region of the highlands in the state of Chiapas. Volunteers will build and improve houses in the communities called “La Trinitaria” and “La Esperanza”, located in the state's border with Guatemala. Activities include: plastering, blacksmithing, installation, concrete mixing and pouring, detailed finishes and secondary building jobs. Volunteers will organise activities with local youth to discover the lifestyle of this community. Depending on the conditions of these communities, there is the possibility of joining local families in their daily activities regarding handmade food production. If weather and other conditions allow it, we could also visit the archaeological site of Chinkultic and the lakes of Montebello.
