Local nonprofit PEACE has recently partnered with two established Puerto Vallarta boutiques to distribute their handmade 100% recyclable products. These unique items are the outcome of Manos Unidos por la Mujer (United Hands for Women), one of PEACE’s primary programs, through which local women receive instruction on how to make unique handcrafts, thus empowers them to achieve financial independence by providing business resources, education and training.
“The time and skill it takes to produce this artwork is truly amazing,” said Ana Peña, Director of Manos Unidas. “The sales from these business partnerships will directly help our artisan co-op and provide essential funding for PEACE to continue other community programs.” Find PEACE products at Cielito Lindo (www.cielitolindomexico.com) and El Baño de Maria (www.elbanodemaria.com).
