What a great joy it is to see our children and youth accomplish their goals and take advantage of all the opportunities given by the amazing nonprofit organizations that we help thanks to your generous support. Join us in celebrating their achievements!
Centros Sor Isolina Ferré
Proud of the Class of 2021!
Congratulations to the 74 graduates of Centros Sor Isolina Ferré’s alternative education high schools. This group of brave students overcame all sorts of challenges in order to achieve this important milestone. Most of them are former school dropouts or were at high risk of becoming one. The alternative education model gives each student a comprehensive support system that goes beyond academics to offer vocational and psychosocial assistance to students. We have supported Centros Sor Isolina Ferré since 2015. We are very proud of you!
Lemonade Day Puerto Rico
Over 1,000 kids participated in Lemonade Day Puerto Rico 2021, an initiative sponsored by the Liberty Foundation. Along with their parents and mentors, these young entrepreneurs learned all about what it takes to turn an idea into an operational business by opening a lemonade stand. For two months, they learned how to plan and operate their own businesses. On June 12, 2021, they all put their entrepreneurial skills to the test by opening their lemonade stands all across the island to sell their amazingly creative lemonade recipes, like “Luna Lemonade”, a mix of lemon, lime, tamarind, sugar, and vanilla (the secret ingredient!) that won this year’s “Best Recipe Award”. This delicious lemonade was created by Carlos and Mikaela Luna Cardona, from Caguas, Puerto Rico. The sky is the limit for these young entrepreneurs!
Boys and Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico
Good times and education at summer camp
Summer is fun and learning at the Boys and Girls of Puerto Rico, one of the Liberty Foundation’s beneficiaries for eight years. After a challenging year of mostly remote services, staff and participants are back in the clubs to be part of the Summer Camp. Children and teenagers are engaged in a wide variety of activities that look forward to reducing some of the educational lagging that has resulted from the many challenges faced by public schools during the remote learning system implemented during the pandemic. Art, STEM activities, agro-ecology, theater, recreation, and emotional support are just a few of the offerings at the clubs. Way to go!
Niños de Nueva Esperanza
Summer camp is back at Sabana Seca
The children and young people of the Sabana Seca community, in Toa Baja, were able to enjoy recreational and educational activities at the Children of Nueva Esperanza camp “Al Son de la Madre Tierra”. After more than a year of mostly remote services, it has been a great joy for everyone to participate in a program that includes sports, theater, art, ecology, and crafts, among many other activities organized by the committed staff of this non-profit organization that has been supported by the Liberty Foundation for more than 5 years.
