Mission Statement

To partner with both, the leaders of Puerto Rico and continental United States, and assist Puerto Rico develop educational programs in emergency services, agriculture, the arts, and entrepreneurship. Since the inception of our organization, we have served as a financial mediator to support other nonprofit organizations in Puerto Rico.

Description

We are a group from New York’s Hudson Valley with Boricua roots, very fortunate to have been provided with an excellent education that prepared us for the future. We understand the drastic changes Puerto Rico is experiencing and are doing everything possible from our end to be of assistance in her revitalization, more specifically by ensuring the youth is properly educated.

For over a year we have been in alliance with various organizations to provide disaster relief and a means of how to establish an emergency plan of action through education. Together we have impacted over eight thousand families in numerous towns through the "Valoralos Con Tus Manos" program. We have successfully distributed over $1.5M of materials FEMA provides our organization needed to rehabilitate homes still devastated or under blue tarps.

By means of this alliance we are rescuing abandoned schools and implementing a unified mission, where schools under our umbrella serve as a place of refuge in the case of a disaster or national emergency, as well as educating the youth and families through the aforementioned programs.
