Border Partners is a nonprofit organization uniting people from both sides of the U.S.–Mexico border in their vision that, by sharing resources, ideas, and experience, we can improve life for many people living in poverty along the border.
Utilizing our experiences in one community–Puerto Palomas de Villa, Chihuahua, Mexico–a community located on the border between the state of New Mexico in the USA and the state of Chihuahua in Mexico- which suffers the many effects of poverty, we are creating a model to expand opportunities and build hope in other border communities.
