The story of FREEDOM’s
Spring Break Service-Learning Trip
to Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries in Texas.
a NEW CONSCIOUSNESS,
a new understanding
Any home needs a foundation.
FREEDOM and Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries set the groundwork for our home.
FREEDOM is a student organization dedicated to cultural awareness, social justice, and the art of human expression.
FREEDOM joined Southwest Good Samaritan Ministries’ CASITA Project, building a home for an impoverished family in Matamoros, Mexico.
The following aspects of our trip worked together to build both the home in Mexico and FREEDOM’s new consciousness.
This refers to the actual process of building the Casita. Creating a physical product as a group was greatly empowering, as well as a great community-building experience.
On this trip, we learned through experience.
One site where the International Wall is to be constructed.
It runs through the middle of the University of Texas.
We saw a site where the
proposed border wall is to be built,
where we discussed the practical and moral implications of a literal international wall.
…THE DRIVE BACK TO OHIO…
WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE HOUSE THAT WE’VE BUILT?
This event is meant to offer free food, information, and solidarity to the Bowling Green community. Mexican culture taught us about human interconnectivity, and we want to share that with BG.
This event will bring student organizations together to discuss issues related to globalization such as immigration, international women’s issues, poverty, NAFTA, and the proposed International Wall.
