With a commitment to diversity, Paz in Oaxaca, Mexico, empowers children and their communities through equitable quality education and comprehensive neighborhood programs so that all can flourish and build a society free of corruption, violence, inequity, and poverty. We support programs and schools that value peace and promote sustainable healthy living practices. We define peace as knowing our own needs, feelings, and life purpose and recognizing, honoring, and defending them from other living beings and systems.
Paz educational and comprehensive neighborhood programs in Oaxaca include:
• A Dual Language Immersion Montessori program (ages 2.5-12) with a diverse student population
• Paz & Play (an after-school program for public school students focusing on Nonviolent Communication, environmental education, and English)
• A community garden
• A multilingual community lending library
• A clothing exchange
• A community MakerSpace
• Creciendo en Paz: A support program for young families
Each year, fundraising helps Paz Oaxaca to:
• Provide much needed resources to support our community programs
• Provide 50% of students attending the Dual Language Immersion Montessori program with full or partial scholarships
• Sponsor two Montessori certifications and other professional development opportunities for our staff.
Paz Oaxaca is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, which supports Paz Montessori A.C.’s expanding projects, including Paz Dual Language Immersion Montessori school. Additionally, we accept tax-deductible donations for other Oaxacan organizations promoting peace and equity in Oaxaca, such as La Protección a la Joven.
