The mission of One Town At A Time is to address the living conditions of poor villages in Mexico by providing families in these areas with tools for achieving sustainability. This is the ideal way to ameliorate the immigration pattern in the United States which currently encourages villagers to cross the border to earn money to send back to their families. By providing villagers with tools for addressing their poverty, they can remain in their villages, sustain a sense of family and community structure, and cultivate pride in their way of life. One Town At A Time shares and provides the technology that enhances the ability of villagers in Mexico to improve and expand their current farming, trade, and communication practices in a way that honors their rich cultural heritage and brings them closer to the global socioeconomic realm.
David Simmonds has traveled the back roads and villages of Mexico since he was 20, interacting with the wonderful, hard-working people that make Mexico such a unique and wonderful country. It is this experience that fueled his desire to make a difference, finding ways to assist the villagers in ways that will strengthen their communities and help to keep families in tact.
He has written about Mexico in various formats for the past 15 years, including publishing the popular Mexico File…the Newsletter for Mexicophiles. He currently has a consulting business aimed at people who would like to move to Mexico, and has authored a book on the subject, Move to Mexico – And Keep the American Dream Alive During These Hard Economic Times. He is also a founding partner in the Mexico travel and opinion web site www.mexicopremiere.com.
David lives in San Diego with his wife, Felice, and kids, Tanner and Nicolette. He can be reached at email@example.com.
