As we begin another phase of our Journey we are indeed pleased to announce the forming of this fund which allows the family to give back to Punta Mita – a place we have called home over the last 5 years. We have embraced Peace and the kids at school since we arrived and find that creating this fund will in more than one way continue our link to a destination that has and will always hold a special place in our hearts. We thank you for your friendship and for your continued support.

Scholarship Mission

This scholarship would enable High School children that attend PEACE programs, who have demonstrated academic potential and are motivated to succeed the opportunity to attend a better education in a well-recognized private Mexican High School closer to Puerto Vallarta.

Peace Mission

To facilitate local development based on self-reliance, self-sufficiency and with full participation and ownership of the entire community through Education, Community Pride and Health/Lifestyle

The Emberson Family

Sabine and Carl Emberson as well as their daughter Tatiana have been an integral part of the PEACE organization through their incredible support. Carl has embraced every opportunity to help out, whether feeding the children who attend the “AVANCA” program breakfast every morning, providing children with apprentice opportunities at the St Regis Hotel or providing space at the hotel to run the Youth and Women empowerment programs. He never misses an opportunity to raise funds for PEACE through Fun Runs, Pack for Peace or Festivals like Flavors Punta Mita to mention just a few.

Sabine’s role within PEACE was in helping in the development of the education programs. She was always ready and willing to listen and help on any issues surrounding education with her incredible understanding and insight of the Mexican Culture. Their daughter Tatiana volunteered 6 months teaching English to the Kindergarden children who loved her enthusiasm, warmth and kindness and dynamic teaching skills. Tatiana also volunteered her time in organizing the annual Primavera Festival. Our younger daughter Chiara whenever in town would always join us for one or more of the breakfasts with the kids at Peace.
