Amy M Welch

Profile:

Amy is the Secretary-Treasurer of PEACE USA, formerly known as PEACE Mexico. PEACE USA primarily supports two entities: PEACE Animals (www.peaceanimals.org), and PEACE Punta de Mita (www.peacepuntademita.org). The animal program is a successful mobile spay and neuter clinic that primarily moves around a 25-mile radius within the Bay of Banderas (Puerto Vallarta). Outlying towns from San Blas (100 miles to the north) and Oaxaca (500 miles to the south) contract with PEACE Animals to conduct free spay and neuter clinics in their towns. Each clinic is 4 days in length, and has a goal of spaying and neutering 25 animals per day while also treating animals for disease. PEACE Punta de Mita is a registered Mexican non-profit which centers its work around the villages of Punta de Mita-Higuera Blanca. Within those communities, the organization strives to bring a better life to the villagers; a free alternative school for children unable to attend school because they do not have the necessary legal paperwork. Other programs the Punta de Mita group sponsors is Action for Food, where unemployed villagers can complete community projects such as picking up garbarge along the roadways, in exchange for basic food and household items. -h PEACE also strives to support other groups such as Pasitos de Luz, a daycare for severely-handicapped children, to give them treatment and food; in order to allow their parents to work.

Leadership Statement:

PEACE strives to make a difference to the lives of the communities in and around the Bay of Banderas; whether that is providing a summer school, sponsoring an alternative school, spaying and neutering cats and dogs, or giving out-of-work villagers work in exchange for basic food items. All these programs are provided free of charge, and make the lives better for the people.
