.Morada de Nino Jesus is a 30 child orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico. We are located about 1 ½ miles from the USA, San Diego, Otay border crossing just off Cucapah Ave. on Tijuana’s east side. Our location is very safe, as we are a resource for our entire surrounding neighborhood.
Over half of our children are disabled or struggle with some physical or mental handicap. We are parents to children with Schizophrenia, blindness, spinal bifida, birth defects and suicide attempts at prior homes. We are unique among Mexican orphanages in that we will take any child Mexican social services (DIF) brings to us.
Even with the challenges our children struggle with, most have transitioned into relatively normal lives. We have no secret to our success. It is just love, compassion and the belief that any person can rise past their limitations. We dont just preach this we do it every day.
Because so many of our children are behind in school when they come to us we have decided to home school our primary (elementary) student. That is where you can make a difference, possibly a life changing difference in their lives and yours.
We are looking for volunteer tutors in all subjects but particularly Math, English and Music. Part-time even occasional is a true gift to us and to you. We also would welcome any assistance in managing the homes accounting and government reporting.
Morada de Nino Jesus has been in operation for over 7 years. We are regularly inspected by Mexican Social Services and are one of the very few orphanages who receive some, very modest, assistance from DIF due to the children we serve, our record of educational accomplishments and the high level of care our children receive daily and our Directors reputation.
