The founders of "Poco a Poco San Pedro" are a group of ex-pat retirees living around Ajijic in Jalisco. They all saw a real need for help in San Pedro Itzicán, Mezcala, and the surrounding communities. The regular volunteers are a mix of ex-pats and Mexican nationals, and we welcome all volunteers!
We starting working as Poco a Poco San Pedro in 2016, helping with a number of local projects aimed at helping the local communities gain skills and education, grow food, distribute donated clothes, provide medical assistance, and guided other organizations towards helping people in the area. But all the work in helping the communities was via the Brigada, because they were the group working and living in the area and they know the needs of the community.
