Micro Business Grassroots Projects by Quid POS
We had the opportunity to live, work and volunteer in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Inspired by meeting PEACE's executive director, Cecilia Paredes, we aim to be involved in the education program by teaching the computer skills necessary to further student education and careers as well as for their personal benefit and enjoyment, thereby furthering PEACE's objective to introduce students and adults to computers
PEACE creates programs designed on the principle of “a hand-up, not a hand-out” as a way influence ongoing social change within the local villages. The majority of villagers are under-educated, relatively poor, and have limited employability scope. PEACE recognized the best chance for success would be to invest in the younger generation from kindergarten to high school. The best chance to effect lasting change is to have a longer view with long-term objectives, focusing on youth education — and that is the basis of all PEACE programs. We proudly support their mission and similar micro business grassroots projects.
Working with local businesses through the Human Connections program and teaching a workshop on business growth through the use of digital tools and enabling technologies like QuidPOS is rewarding for all.
