Entreamigos is a nonprofit organization whose goal is to be a bridge between the local community and culture by creating educational opportunities for children and families in San Francisco (San Pancho) Nayarit, Mexico. Entreamigos’ hosts an established community center dedicated to increase learning opportunities for disadvantaged children and families through the implementation of educational programs based on integration and collective community action.
The Entreamigos Centro Comunitario Educativo is a 16,000 sq foot educational facility which hosts a library, computer lab, classrooms, sports and exercise spaces, a gallery, a giant “fridge” cinema room, eco-design workshops, recycling center and re-sale shop! The building itself is fun, beautiful and educational.
In this small pueblo of approximately 2500 residents; Entreamigos staff of volunteers and teachers provide educational workshops and classes to 300 students per year, is sponsoring school scholarship programs for 81 students and has provided children with homework tutoring 1,300 times last year.
Donated items contributed will be used to augment the center’s constantly depleting resources. Additionally, the donated items will help support adult productivity workshops.
The Entreamigos building has been recognized as a model facility for environmentally responsible design, the integration of natural elements and innovation in the use of recycled materials. Entreamigos is truly a wonder of sustainable design and a great place to visit for anyone!
