This is our mission of life in "Los Ojos de Dios", Inc. A private not-for-profit in Mexico and the USA dedicated to serving children and providing them with the love and care they were deprived of when someone threw them away because of their birth defects. Children found everyday in the streets, churches, hallways and doorsteps all throughout the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.
This comprehensive rehabilitation center is the only safe haven for them in the state. Here, they find love and sense of belonging in a family like home setting. Our bio-technology sustainable methods of constructing were developed by professionals in the field of alternative architecture and power generation of the Autonomous University of Ciudad Juarez, making this an ecological model in Latin America. We create awareness in our present generation and promote its active participation in the conservation of our environment.
Los Ojos de Dios sought to lay its foundation on what represents an opportunity to partner with existing community initiatives in order to maintain its viability as well as to effectively tap resources already in play at the community level.
We hope that the example and impact of lives transformed here will inspire other such partnerships across the continent and around the world.

Since her path and Gerardo's crossed, they both have shared interest in making a difference in the lives of orphans and the less privileged children. By uniting this conviction and profound insights into life, they have since developed a strong bond that has led to the foundation of "Los Ojos de Dios", her life-long dream that has now become a reality.
Patricia:"I am convinced that fondness and support, but most of all the LOVE a person receives during his early childhood is the only key to sound development, which will set forth high standards of life and self-esteem. It will mark the individual forever."
