Back To Back is the best non profit I work with. I often explain their model to other groups I work with because it is run so professionaly.
And the people that work for them have passion for their cause's like no other organization.
My son volunteered for a month last summer and came back
a better young man. He had a great experience.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Week long family trip and funding for employees and startups in new locations.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Focus more on the locations they now serve instead of starting new projects.

I've been a youth pastor for over 17 years now and led over 20 mission trips. I took a group of youth to India with Back 2 Back summer 2010 and fell in love with this ministry. They are professional, organized, safe and most of all Spirit driven. I trust them 100% and our youth group sponsors two staff now as our ongoing support of Back2Back. We hope to work with them again in the near future! If you are looking for a place for your young people to experience a new culture and make a difference while having their owns lives transformed- this is it! The children are amazing.

Not sure anything should be changed... it would have been great to have had a bit more siteseeing and/or shopping time to bring that part back with us.

Yes! I fell in love with India and learned a new appreciation for a culture that learns in memory blocks and deep family traditions. I also discovered a brand new cuisine to eat!

I felt useful and important to the projects and humble and appreciative of all I received.

Along with my wife and our daughter, I took my first short-term mission trip with this ministry in 2007 in order to serve orphans in Monterrey, MX. The depth and meaningfulness of the entire week was beyond anything I'd imagined. We've gone every year since, have been regular donors to the ministry's education program for orphans in Mexico, and advocate for the ministry wherever and however we can. Back2Back is less about relief and more about "release." Release from the sentence that orphans in poverty face with little opportunity to break free of the cycle of orphan creation, by investing into more than just food/clothing for the children. Over the years, I've come to know many of the staff personally and each one is 100% genuine in their love of children and commitment to the ministry's mission and vision. I've also learned that the ministry is an extremely efficienct non-profit, with only 14% of donations going to cover non-program related expenses. I encourage anyone who wants to make a difference in the life of an abandoned child, to roll up their sleeves and get involved with Back2Back.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

how it's impacted my family and our view of our responsibility to help those least able to change their circumstances: abandoned, abused and neglected children in abject poverty. I've also seen the impact it's having on the children who've been touched by the ministry and the short-term mission trip guests who have partnered with Back2Back.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

look for ways to expand the awareness of the ministry.

I do alot of business in Mexico and love the people. I did some research on some ministries in Monterrey specfically. I found Back2Back and visited shortly after. What an incredible story this ministry has. Wonderful people who through their love for Christ are making an incredible difference in the lives on so many children. A short flight from Houston, you can go down and volunteer or just make a short visit to see how your donations are helping. Trust me, one visit and you'll be looking to see how you or your company can help this organization.

This is an awesome organization. The leaders and workers are incredibly selfless. They pour their lives into serving the poor and abondoned in several locations, providing care for today and hope for the future. I have visited their site in Monterrey, Mexico four times and plan to take my family to the Nigeria location this summer. They also provide a terrific environment for their guests to grow in their own relationship with Jesus. The trips our family have made have set us all on a new path of service for God and the people for whom he weeps. My teenage daughters have been changed for life.

I have the distinct priviledge of watching and being part of the B2B Mexico mission since the beginning 13 years ago. While my opinion is strongly biased because of my personal relationship with Todd & Beth (I'm Todd's dad) I often brag about what they are doing and the wonderful way they do it. I have lost count of the number of times I have visited B2B in Monterrey. What impresses me most is the fantastic staff doing this ministry.

I have had the priveledge of leading multiple groups to serve with the B2B team in Monterrey. I cannot say enough about the professionalism, orginization,and focus of the entire team. B2B at it's core "bleeds the cause of the orphan". As guest we have always felt informed, cared for and safe. My life, the lives of my family and many volunteers have forever had their lives changed for the better because of our shared experiences with Back 2 Back.

I've been to Monterrey to serve with Back2Back 2 times. They do such a good job of providing opportunities that not only help the orphans but also encourage you to grow so that it is much more then just an experience. Me and my family are different because of serving with Back2Back Ministries.

I work for an organization that leads mission trips. I have served with Back2Back Mexico multiple times. They are a very strong organization with leaders who look after each group as if it were their own family! I have never felt safer, nor worked with a company who was more prepared to meet the needs of each group.
I recommend them to everyone! Since going through work I have even involved my church on yearly trips now as well!
