Over the past three decades, P.E.C.E.S. has done a great job to develop the community of Humacao, a small coastal town in Puerto Rico. Thousands of kids have been able to finish their high school through an alternative education program that effectively addresses the needs of students for whom the traditional system is not appropriate.
The organization promotes the socio economic development of the area by providing training and guidance to small and community businesses, working on the bases of solidarity economics. Programs include the school, a day care, the small business incubator, coaching for parents and families and many other initiatives.
