Welcome to

Peace Punta de Mita

Our Mission

PEACE determined that to influence social change within the local villages that would endure over time, it should create programs designed on the principle of “a hand-up, not a hand-out”. A large percentage of the villagers are under-educated, relatively poor, and with limited employability scope. PEACE recognized the best chance for success would be to invest in the younger generation - the children and youths - from kinder to high school inclusive. Having a longer view, with longer term objectives, focusing on education for the younger generation, has the best chance to effect lasting change, and that is the basis of all PEACE programs.

Education

In pursuit of its mission to enhance the standard of living for the local communities within the Punta de Mita area, Peace focuses its efforts on various facets of education, targeting primarily the youngest members of the communities, those that are the most adaptable and the most vulnerable, by participating in their education.

Health & Lifestyle

Summer Camps. Peace summer camp is an important program for children since it is the only activity existing for children in our communities during the summer school holidays. Every summer, for 2 weeks, about 120 kids, aged 3 to 15, participate in dance, music, sports,     and arts classes

Computer Classes

In today’s job market, computer skills are critical, and in many ways essential to the advancement of knowledge and education. Due to the lack of computer training classes in the area, Peace stepped up by procuring computers and offering classes.

English Program

Though the local economy is almost entirely based on tourism, the local public schools did little to prepare their students to function in an environment where knowledge of the English language is paramount.
