OUR MISSION, VISION, & GOALS
At DouglaPrieta Works, our mission is to collaborate with community-based and faith-based partners in Agua Prieta, Sonora, Mexico, to promote a mutual-aid ethic among community members, with the goal of economic self-sufficiency.
The Women’s Cooperative can make a variety of products to your specifications. All proceeds from sales go directly to the DouglaPrieta Center and are used to pay the workers, cover the cost of materials, and help pay the costs of the center itself.
SUSTAINABLE FOOD SECURITY
DouglaPrieta Works encourages sustainable food security through the creation of region-appropriate food production systems. Using a permaculture model as the basis for a community demonstration garden, we teach horticultural skills to residents of colonias in Agua Prieta. That enables them to create their own household kitchen gardens.
One of the goals for DouglaPrieta Works is to provide education on border issues to interested Americans. We welcome individuals or groups to visit with us. Visits and tours of the DPT Center and of Agua Prieta and its colonias can be arranged. Lunch or dinner in the Center and discussion of border issues can be included.
DONATE TO OUR FUTURE
Our ideas for future development are limited only by…
…the funds we have to realize them.
