Current Projects on the Go and Projects we are preparing for

Will you Pray for the projects we are working on, we need your help!

Children's Home

At Ancla, we are continually growing. Our current children's home is full to capacity and yet there are so many more children to help. We are currently constructing our second children's home that will welcome 12 more children to Ancla! God has been faithful in this project but more funds will be needed in order to complete it! Want to be involved?

Kitchen Upgrades

Our kitchen has served us well but changes are required to bring us into compliance with the codes here in Mexico. Our kitchen roof is constructed of Palm leaves which the government has concluded is unsafe. The roof needs to be removed and a concrete roof needs to be installed. In addition, The government has also passed a new law stating that all children's shelters cannot have propane gas fixtures installed in any of their facilities. That means that our stove and grill needs to be changed out to electric appliances. 

We have now passed the deadline to become compliant so we are desperately seeking help. The Government has stated that they will transfer all our children that are under 6 years of age to the state facility if we do not comply. This would be devastating to us as staff and traumatizing to the children that have called Ancla their home for the past months and years. 

Would you consider helping?

Courtyard & Park

We have been so busy catching up and constructing facilities and infrastructure for Ancla that we have never had the opportunity to build a fun place for our children to play! But lets not forget our staff either! We have designed a beautiful courtyard and park that we would like build in the beginning of 2020. 

This outdoor area will have a fun area for the children to play but it will also have a relaxing feel for our staff so that they can also enjoy themselves.


One of the main reasons that this is important is for the safety of our children. This courtyard and park will be clean and organized and clean up will be easy! Living in the dessert has its challenges. For one, everything is dirty, but worse we are constantly dealing with critters that are not good! Scorpions and rattlesnakes are our main challenge and thankfully we have never had a bite from either! God has certainly been gracious! We want to create a fenced in area that is clean and easy to inspect for snakes and bugs so that we can let the children out to play with peace of mind know that they are safe.


This will be a fun project, want to help?

Below, This is the area that we will build our Courtyard and Park. As you can see children can safely go outside and play!

Below are drawings of the Courtyard and park. The final product will not be exactly as shown but this gives you a very close example.

Property Fence

We are currently in the process of designing a fence that will replace our current fence along the road as well as close in the orphanage area. In order to become compliant with rules and regulations we are required to have a secure fenced in area for the children. As you can imagine on a ranch we have many areas of the property that  is not safe for the children. We need to do everything that we can to ensure that the children are safe at all times.


We have also had unwanted visitors arrive at the ranch looking for children and we have had people taking photos of our children through the current fence. This makes us uncomfortable. We are looking for people that would help us secure our property so that the children are safe and secure and we as staff have peace of mind.


Drawings will be provided in the near future.
