The Tsegyalgar West Los Naranjos retreat center in Baja Ca Sur needs your support to complete repairs and renovate its infrastructure from last year's damage from Hurricane Odile. We have made progress with a new roof structure for the meeting hall, but still need support to replace solar batteries, hot water heaters in casitas, etc. This funding is essential to keep the beautiful and peaceful center maintained for renting to groups, as that is an important source of income.
Please give to the Capital Campaign and we will give back in a program in acknowledgement of your gift! Please join us in collaboration by donating
