The Entreamigos community center was founded in 2006 in the heart of San Pancho, Mexico. What started as teaching arts and crafts on a picnic table in a neighborhood front yard has grown into a vibrant center dedicated to education, environmentalism, youth and their families. The home to most of their programming is a remodeled 16,000 square foot warehouse considered a model in sustainability, designed using majority recycled materials.


Spark Ventures provides funding and strategic support to Entreamigos‘ Women Entrepreneur group, which empowers women of the lowest socio-economic level. These women meet regularly and produce products from recycled goods that are sold in Entreamigos’ gallery. The women are paid for their products and also gain valuable business skills.


While the recycling program continues to grow and thrive, the Spark Ventures’ Associate Board is fundraising to provide additional funding for the recycling program – which will in turn support more opportunities for women in the entrepreneur group.


Join us to ensure that the community of San Pancho and the dedicated women at Entreamigos have the resources they need to achieve their full potential.
