Who doesn’t need a little PEACE in their lives? At LivePuntaMita.com, we are super-fans of this local non-profit group which works joyfully and tirelessly to make our community a better place.

What is PEACE? Protection, Education, Animals, Culture & Environment. Surely you can find something among those values to get excited about. And, a helping hand is always welcome (and needed!) as there is so much to do. In the month of May, here are a few ways you can learn in a hands-on way what PEACE is about, and contribute to our community:

Volunteer Opportunities Every Week include the following:

  • Cook lunch for the kids in our alternative school
  • Participate in a trash pick-up
  • Volunteer in an animal clinic
Sunday May 15th ~ PEACE is participating in the 7th Annual Altruism Festival this year on May 15th. Volunteers are needed to help sell tickets, promote the event and to work the event with PEACE.

ABOUT PEACE:

MISSION: PEACE works hand in hand with communities in Mexico to provide holistic education combined with community action programs that enable people to improve their quality of life as well as their financial stability.

VISION: We envision a peaceful co-existence between human beings and natural treasures, between foreigners and locals, between those who can give and those who need assistance, between progress and preservation.

VALUES
  • We believe in providing hands-on learning that results in empowerment, increased ownership and social responsibility.
  • We believe that one of our greatest responsibilities as beings on this earth is to protect the natural resources that surround us.
  • We believe it is of utmost importance to preserve and celebrate the richness and beauty of Mexican culture.
