Mission Statement

To empower Cuban youth to become the authors of their own futures.

Description

Raices de Esperanza means "roots of hope." We are a network of more than 3,000 students and young professionals across the U.S. and abroad focused on empowering Cuban youth. We seek to inspire young people to care about Cuba, think outside the box and proactively support our young counterparts on the island through innovative means.

In 2003, we were founded by college students as an association between the Georgetown and Harvard Cuban American student groups. Today, we encompass a dynamic and diverse group of young servant leaders throughout the U.S. with students at more than 55 universities and young professionals in Boston, New York, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami.

We hope to make a positive impact on Cuba - an issue often tangled with pain, separation, fear, emotion, misunderstanding and politics - through academic and cultural initiatives guided by three basic principles: amor, amistad y esperanza (love, friendship and hope).
