Proyecto MEFI is a Mexico based ministry which is seeking to equip and train the local churches of Mexico to unite and lead society in the eradication of homelessness amongst children and young people.
MEFI is doing this through four key strategies;
1) Proactive ministries We are seeking to educate both parents and their children from the poorer communities we work with, of the risks of slipping into the life of the streets; drugs, prostitution, violence and gang warfare. Sadly a vast majority of the children and young people from these communities are high risk of becoming homeless one day. It is our desire to reach them before this happens.
2) Street Outreach We send teams out to the streets to show acts of Mercy, plant ‘house churches’ amongst homeless the homeless children and young people of Mexico, to share the love and transforming power of the cross and resurrection of Christ. In the hope they can break free from their dark world to the dawn of a more abundant life.
3) Drop in Centre For many street kids and young people the leap between the streets and full integration is too great therefore the drop in centre acts as a stepping stone. They come and receive bible studies and discipleship as well as an opportunity to have a hot shower and a meal. We have recently started a programme where they can receive a basic government recognised education.
4) Rehab and Integration The last stage of our ministry is to help them break their addictions, normally drugs and alcohol, and then help integrate them into a church, and society in general by reuniting them with their families, or finding somewhere to rent, as well as a job to sustain them.
