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, inequality, 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 include a Dual Language Immersion Montessori school in Oaxaca, Mexico, (bilingual education from 2.5–12 to a diverse student population), Paz & Play (afterschool program for public school students focusing on pro-social skills such as Nonviolent Communication and English), community garden, multilingual community lending library, community free clothing exchange, community MakerSpace, and, in the future, a home visiting program supporting young families.
Each year, Paz Oaxaca fundraises so that almost 50% of the students attending the Dual Language Immersion Montessori program can receive a full or partial scholarship and sponsors two Montessori certifications for staff. www.pazmontessori.com
Paz Oaxaca is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization 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. www.pazoaxaca.org
