Centro Paz para Ti (Center Peace for You) is an initiative of the Coordinadora Paz para la Mujer (Peace for Women Coalition). The center offers educational services and support to foster the comprehensive development of women in the community and region. Since September 2018, the Coalition has worked together with community residents, volunteers and other human rights organizations to rescue an abandoned school in the community and transform it into a community services center focusing on women. Since March 2019 the Center has offered support and education in areas such as emotional health, agriculture, economic development, handcrafts and business, that participants have used to generate much needed income which helps them live more independent lives. The training included a course tittle Fundamentals of Solar Energy, that prepared low-income women from the
community with everything needed to start and run a solar energy system installation business. The Center also runs an agro-ecology and handcraft market once a month.
