Mission and Vision

Mission Statement

 

At Fundación Pobreza/Child Poverty Foundation we are deeply committed to the rigorous study and fight against poverty and child poverty in Puerto Rico. Poverty levels on our Island are at alarming levels, almost four times the U.S. average, a stark reality that compels us to act with urgency and commitment. We recognize that education serves as the cornerstone of empowerment, and it is through this perspective that we focus most of our efforts. By implementing innovative educational programs and supporting research initiatives, we aim to provide individuals and communities with the knowledge and skills necessary to break free from the chains of poverty.

Our vision extends beyond temporary relief. We seek to achieve a future where the cycle of poverty in Puerto Rico is eradicated, replaced by opportunity, self-sufficiency and economic growth. Fundación Pobreza/Child Poverty Foundation is committed to using every means at our disposal, mobilizing resources, fostering collaboration and driving systemic change, to create a Puerto Rico where every child and family has the opportunity to thrive. With resilience and hope we aspire to be an agent of change, illuminating the path to a more prosperous and equitable Puerto Rico.
