International Mission Trip to Puerto Rico

Even though Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, Puerto Ricans face challenges that many Americans do not. Over 45% of the population live below the poverty line, making it significantly poorer than the poorest U.S. state of Mississippi. Half of the island relies on food stamps. Many homes are headed by females, and of those families, 61% of them live in poverty. Youths grow up deprived of material security as well as a male role model. Only 11% of the population have a college degree, while 62% fail to complete secondary school – the highest dropout rate in the USA. These low education levels are profoundly linked to unemployment, poverty, and crime issues.

When you serve in Puerto Rico with Group International Mission Trips, you’ll have the chance to serve alongside a group of people who are providing Puerto Ricans every opportunity to rise above the circumstances they were born into. This global experience will grow your faith and expand your understanding of the complexity of poverty.
