Who We Are
¡Bienvenidos! We are the 2021-2022 PUC Mexico Team!
Projects with Underserved Communities (PUC) is a year-long, project-based class in which engineering students are teamed up to work with an abroad community. This year, we are partnering with Tejiendo Alianzas, an NGO in Oaxaca, and the Santiago Suchilquitongo community in Oaxaca, Mexico. We are working with the NGO and community to identify and prioritize the needs of the community, and then design a project to fulfill those needs. Finally, in the summer, the team will travel to and stay with the community while implementing and overseeing the completion of the project, all while developing meaningful relationships with the locals whose lives the project actually impacts. We aim to gain hands-on experience in a global setting combining technical engineering and service.

Why We Need YOU
While we will work hard throughout the year to plan our project, we can't do anything without the help of the community, which exclusively funds this project. Every donation, every share, and every comment will bring us closer to our goal of raising $15,000, which will go towards project expenses such as raw material purchases, contractor labor, and technical advising services.
Please consider donating, spreading the word on social media, or even becoming an ambassador for our project. All donations are tax-deductible.
Donating to this project, would not only mean the improvement of mesquite flour production, but also the betterment of the lives of the hard workers that make the process possible! Our project will allow the community to produce more mesquite flour by decreasing the annual loss of necessary raw materials. In doing so, not only will the community benefit but there will be more mesquite flour available!
