About Mexico: Baja

ISL’s Baja Mexico program is an on-going humanitarian project that takes place in Puerto Peñasco, situated along the beautiful Sea of Cortez. We work with global health agencies, local health ministries, and other NGOs to build capacity in our partner communities. Volunteers are able to gain valuable experience participating in community clinics and working in institutional and community health contexts.
