New Beginnings Mexico began over 13 years ago with an Ottawa couple who had the heart to serve families living in extreme poverty, in communities surrounding Puerto Vallarta. New Beginnings provides food to those who suffer from food insecurities. On a bi-weekly basis, volunteers and the New Beginnings team help to prepare and distribute food bags in four communities, to those who are in need. Approximately 120 families receive assistance.
New Beginnings partners with LaEscuelita, a before and after school, where 100 children receive educational support, nutritious meals and access to medical care, all in a loving environment.
New Beginnings also began and supports two women’s projects. Women make jewellery and bags, which they sell at local tourist markets. The women receive 100% of their profits.
We are hosting this GoFundMe so that we can purchase a multi use truck.
*This truck will be used to support LaEscuelita, to pick up weekly, donated food items for their lunch program and to take children to medical appointments that a local hotel provides through their hotel doctor.
*The NB truck will be used to pick up and distribute one ton of donated frozen vegetables every second week. It will also pick up weekly food supplies that are distributed to the community.
*The truck will also be used by NB women’s groups who sell their handmade jewellery and bags at tourist markets during the touist season. The women are currently vendors at three markets in the Puerto Vallarta area.
While a newer vehicle is desired, available funds will be used to purchase the best vehicle available.
