Activated Baja in Collaboration with Big Ben School

Joy Peck

Activated Baja was approached by a 6th grade teacher name Tammy from Big Ben School (Colegio Big Ben de Londres) in Ensenada. As part of the curriculum, the students from her 6th grade class needed to participate in some social work in the local community. Tammy asked us if we had any suggestions for them.

Visit to Casa Hogar de Ancianos in Ensenada

Joy Peck

Activated Ministries volunteers had been hoping to make a visit to a local home for the elderly here in Ensenada. After making a few calls and inquiries, we got in touch with the director of Casa Hogar del Ancianos. We made a preliminary visit to the retirement home to assess their needs, see what we could do to help, and to plan a small event for a later date.
