The Colonies is an area in Agua Prieta not far from the border where people build their homes on a former garbage dump. 


There is a wide variety of structures built here ranging from family residences to drug houses. Some are made of cardboard and skids while others are made of adobe bricks. There is also a large government housing project being built.

Concern International ministers to this area by handing out hygiene kits, Bibles, Tracts, and Testament.
