Our story

In April of 2018, a group of seven classmates from the alternative high school in La Paz, State of Mexico, took the first step in transforming their future.

They decided to participate in a course at the Amextra Community Center in Lomas de San Isidro about entrepreneurship, where they learned business basics such as defining a purpose and goals, conducting a market analysis, managing operations, and organizing administration and finances. At the end of the course, they decided to convert the theoretical project they created in class into a real and concrete project. Thus, the “Taste of Dreams” collective, a project for the production and sale of salsas and natural jams, was born.

 

The members of the “Taste of Dreams” collective are young people that are motivated to transform their lives using their talent for entrepreneurship. They have developed creative flavor combinations, such as mango habanero salsa, to cater to a unique market and distinguish their product from the products of their competitors. They chose canning of jams and salsas for their project due to the high probability of attracting repeat customers. These are the ideas of great entrepreneurs!

 

Today, Marco, Angel, Alberto, Flavio, Eric, María del Socorro, and Jaqueline are 100% ready to grow their project. Their stated purpose is to provide natural and healthy products to their community. However, their personal purpose is different: each of them wants to build a better future for themselves and their family. In the area where they live, school dropout and unemployment rates are among the highest in Mexico. Due to the lack of opportunities, many of their schoolmates will see their dreams stifled by becoming involved in addictions, teenage pregnancies or organized crime.

 

To continue supporting the “Taste of Dreams” collective and help these teens reach their goal of a better life, we need to raise $3,000 USD for their materials and additional business training. Donate today and be part of their transformation!
