In 2017, realizing the ever-present danger of human trafficking of at-risk young girls, Outreach for Nazareth Orphanage (OFNO) initiated a fundraising campaign “Girls Everywhere Matter” (GEM) to raise $750,000 for Phase 1 in the development of additional campus facilities beginning with a dormitory and dining facility designed to accommodate up to 50 young orphaned girls for the first time at the Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico. These facilities will provide the girls with the same safety and life-sustaining necessities as the orphaned boys.
Thanks to donors and supporters like you we have successfully raised the money needed to begin construction of our Phase 1 plans and will be announcing soon when we expect to break ground.
ORPHANAGE EXPANSION PROJECT PHASE 2
$100,000 of $750,000 raised
We now are underway with our Phase 2 Girls Everywhere Matter campaign looking to raise the balance of capital needed to complete the updates to the orphanage infrastructure building of a small chapel and breaking ground on a community center where boys and girls can participate in family activities and expanded personal development. Please help us by making a donation today !
PROJECT PHASE 2
Outreach For Nazareth Orphanage (OFNO) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that works to support the fundraising and volunteer efforts that benefit all at-risk young boys and girls at the Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico. OFNO’s efforts help the Sisters of the Sacred Heart and of the Poor provide a safe home environment as well as other necessities needed to support the children.

Give Your Support Today!
Exciting news! The new girls’ dormitory is under construction! This phase of the initiative is well underway! But we still need your help.
With an emphasis on Family Togetherness, Nazareth Orphanage is striving to reunite children with their siblings when possible.
The problem only continues to grow. Here's why we need your help:
Mexico is an origin, transit and destination country for trafficking victims. Investigations have risen by one third in the last few years, but the country is having trouble tackling the problem. All of us can do our part to save one child at time.

COMPASSION IN MOTION
Four Saturdays during the school year, OFNO volunteers travel to Nazareth Orphanage in Tecate, Mexico to participate in a day of volunteering alongside the children and Sisters. The daylong trips begin early in the morning, and volunteers return to San Diego that same day. Volunteers help with maintenance projects such as gardening or painting the facilities. We are so grateful to those that assist, and no experience is necessary. Help us make a difference!
Our trips for this coming school year are scheduled for January 13, 2024 and March 23, 2024. (Note: Trips may be canceled due to continuing pandemic issues. Please check our Website often for updated information.)
