One House, One Day

This is Fuentes del Valle, an informal settlement community just a few miles from the United States border in Tijuana, Mexico. One hundred and fifty families live here, mostly migrants from central Mexico searching for better opportunities. The cost of living and low wages often leaves these families with insufficient funds to build houses. Meet Mari, she is 28 and a single mother. At night, she sleeps in a twin bed with her 3 children in a tiny two room structure they call home. IRT built Mari a home in one day and changed her life forever.
