Contribute in the creation of a sustainable Mexico, environmentally, economically, culturally and socially.
Bring a supporting network to social projects backed by non-profits and/or people that build a sustainable reality in Mexico.
Organización de Líderes Altruistas Kintsugi is constituted as a non-political, non-religious non-profit in 2015 in Mexico City.
It’s created with the intention of adding on to the collective and individual efforts of people that dedicate their time, resources and efforts to build a life situation in Mexico that is environmentally, economically, culturally and socially sustainable.
The project that gives birth to O.L.A.K.A.C. is a book titled: “ The Tree or Remembrance of an Inanimate Life ”, which donates its profits to a non-profit that takes care and protects children.
We are founded in the conviction that it’s possible to create a more harmonious world if our thoughts, words, emotions and actions are congruent with the following values: respect, love, empathy, honesty, reciprocity and a service attitude.
We’re a not-for-profit organization that seeks to plant positive seeds in people with its actions and supporting the actions of others so that they may multiply in benefit of others, specifically the groups that are the most vulnerable in Mexico: minors, women, elders and non-human living beings that coexist in this planet (plants, animals, water).
Our motto, known as the Golden Rule: “Love and do unto others as you would have them do unto you” reflects the nature of our actions and the commitment that we have with our cause, which provides us with personal satisfaction and gives meaning to our everyday existence.
We're not all born or living in the same circumstances, but we all have the capacity to contribute something to others. We put together children from a foster home with a will to learn with elders from a home with a will to teach. The children learned how to take care of an orchard and cultivate their own food. Reconnecting with nature, becoming conscious of the importance of caring for it. Recognizing themselves capable of doing something positive for another, as simple and profound as attention, care and companionship, because we believe that the most important seed to sprout is the seed of love. We thank from our hearts the support of all of those who made this project possible.
We've worked very well with the Book with Cause project; both the children and the staff love the story.

The projects we do together with OLAKAC fill us with joy and pride; we're building a beautiful long-term relationship that shares the vision to contribute positively to the world.

This non-profit's performance and the professionalism is top-notch. The team has helped us greatly with strategic planning.

We dreamt about an urban orchard; it has brought a new, attractive and beneficial activity for our elders.

I recommend the workshop: De Género en General (sic) because it's informative, formative, precise and clear.

I want to share with you that this has been the best day of my life; when I'm older I want to have a mansion for grandparents.
13 year old girl, foster home resident.
It's very nice to see how the elders await excitedly for the girls' visit and then hear the girls share with their housemates the anecdotes they heard. Something that has stuck with them is the patience and perseverance with which the elders care for the orchard and their way of seeing life.

Our non-profit supports altruistic organizations or people that support social projects that benefit preferably minors, women, elders and non-human living beings (plants, animals, water), as well as develop our own projects.
Our mission is that our projects are virtuous and balanced win-win circles. Coordinating projects with funding organizations and collective financing we generate the necessary income so that all parts are benefited. We are a non-profit association, so we also support ourselves with donations.
If you wish to support us, please contact us to inform you about the different ways to do it. You can also support us by purchasing our “with cause” products and services.
We are still in the process of achieving this with the corresponding government offices, hoping we will be able to do so in 2018.
Liaisons, professional and technical link-ups, publicity, workshops, personalized assessment, inclusion in our donor and volunteer network, promotion and co-creation of products and projects with cause and publication of results.
Have a project in its initial or progressive phase which preferably benefits minors, women, elders or non-human living beings (plants, animals, water); be supported by people, organized groups or non-profits established in Mexico; proof of career or life path of altruistic and/or social work in Mexico; have a transparent and auditable process.
If you think your project matches our goals, contact us to know more about it and evaluate the best way to support and help you.
Please write us an email to get in touch and evaluate the best way to support and help you.
Yes you can, and yes we will provide you with the corresponding letter of social service liberation.
Of course! You can be a volunteer directly with us and/or we can channel you to one of the non-profits or projects we work with.
Yes, please contact us!
“Kintsugi” or “Kintsukuroi” is a word in Japanese that means “to repair with gold” or “golden repair”. It’s “the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, a method similar to the maki-e technique. As a philosophy, it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise.” (Source: Wikipedia 2017). It’s part of a philosophy that states that breaks and repairs are part of the history of an object and must be shown instead of hidden, stand out and do so to enhance the beauty of the object, manifesting its transformation and history. We apply this philosophy to our work: as organized altruistic leaders, we can be agents of change in Mexico and help to “repair” with our daily efforts some of the “breaks” of our country, thus beautifying it and making it a more sustainable place to live a happy life.
