PEACE (Protection & Education: Animals, Culture, and Environment)


PEACE increases educational and economic opportunities that support an improved quality of life by working hand-in-hand with communities surrounding the Bay of Banderas (Puerto Vallarta) and beyond.



PEACE envisions vibrant communities in which all individuals are empowered to achieve their fullest potential, and live safe and healthy lives in harmony with the natural environment.



Protection:  It is essential to protect youth, women, animals, culture, and the environment while instilling individual and community responsibility.

Education:  Providing quality education for youth and adults is a fundamental part of promoting positive change.

Animals:  We have the responsibility to protect all animals as an integral part of every community.

Culture:  We believe in preserving and celebrating the richness and beauty of Mexican culture, as well as promoting diversity and global awareness.

Environment:  It is one of our greatest duties to conserve and protect the environment for future generations.
