The first wall going up. Here are some photos from a short project that I worked on in Rosarito, Mexico. The purpose of the film was to document the efforts of a charity named Companies With A Mission or CWAM for short. Their mission is to partner with other companies and their employees to help people in the impoverished and low-income areas of northern Mexico. During this trip four houses were built and donated to people in this area.
The homes that are built are very humble, essentially a two room house the size of an American one car garage. However, this home was an incredible blessing to these people as many are virtually homeless. One family was living in a tent waiting for their home to be built. I was touched when another woman burst into tears after witnessing the walls go up on her new home.
I had to download my footage every day during a hurried lunch. This is my improvised office in the neighborhood.
