As we transition from a humid summer to a temperate fall, the PEACE team continues with a number of awesome projects in various communities throughout the Bahia de Banderas and beyond. It's incredible to see the growth and the inter-connectedness of our programs, and it's even more amazing seeing how PEACE is positively changing aspects of life in these communities! Read on to learn more about PEACE and our upcoming events.
