About

Comunidad Para Baja California is a volunteer organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for the indigenous communities of Baja California.

We operate as a 'non-profit startup', with every program evaluated by its ROI (impact on the Nativo population + the return on our investors' money and volunteers' time). Since Comunidad's administrative expenses are underwritten by contributions from its Board members, 100% of every dollar donated goes directly to the Nativo tribes.

While our initial constituency is deliberately small (the 2000 members of the Kumeyaay, Pai Pai, Kiliwa and Cucapah tribes), our definition of 'Comunidad' is broad, including the people, schools and infrastructure that make up the indigenous communities. Our goal is to stay small and focused, build a sustainable model for improved health care and education, then duplicate in other communities.

Finally, we believe in achievement through partnering-not only with the Nativo tribal council and organizations such as CUNA (focused on the preservation of indigenous cultures) but with a variety of US and Mexican organizations (medical, government and civic). These alliances allow us to leverage our resources, expand our volunteer pool, and achieve maximum ROI for our sponsors and volunteers.
