Walking for Oaxaca

This Summer, Forward Edge will be participating in the world famous Portland to Coast walking relay to raise money for impoverished families in Oaxaca, Mexico! Our team’s goal is to raise $10,000. These funds will be invested into a self-sustaining home-building business. This business will bring stable employment to struggling families of the children in our Trigo y Miel program, by utilizing earth block technology to build safe and affordable homes. READ MORE…

Open Child Sponsorship Teams 2017

Open teams give anyone the opportunity to join an already-planned mission trip. These trips bring together missions-minded individuals from all over the United States and Canada. Our open teams also present a unique opportunity for child sponsors. Whether you already sponsor a child or are considering the opportunity – open trips are a great way to meet sponsored children in person! Upcoming open teams will be highly relational and focus on spending time with the children in our program.
