The Rotary Club of Tehachapi has helped support a home for needy children in Tijuana, Mexico, for the last several years as our International Service Project.
Our most recent visit south of the border was on October 25th and 26th where we met Rotarians from the China Lake Rotary Club. Together, we provided essential needs for the home, Ninos de la Promesa.
Among our contributions to the home were a new washer and dryer (they do nearly 100 loads of laundry daily), new go-to-school backpacks for all the kids and 3 cartloads of groceries and kitchen supplies. It’s rewarding to be there and to see the immediate results of our service. The kids and home managers are always so pleased and thankful for our visit. Most of the kids have come from the red light district of Tijuana, where they have been seriously neglected and sometimes left to fend for themselves. Ninos de la Promesa provides a clean, safe environment for them and ensures they attend school and church activities. Giving to these kids not only improves their lives but improves the lives of us who help them out.

The Tijuana Children's Home continues its good work with abandoned kids in the border city. As our International Project our Club continues to provide help where we can.
On our October 25th trip to Ninos de la Promesa, we'll be joined by China Lake Rotary Club members to take needed items. We have 50 kids backpacks, emergency lighting and dorm room curtains. The number of kids being cared for requires the home to do a hundred loads of wash each day. We hope to purchase and industrial washing machine for them, as they go through regular washing machines quite quickly. We're very happy to be working together with other area Rotary Clubs to support the kids home. They include, China Lake, Indian Wells Valley and the Bakersfield Breakfast Rotary clubs.
