How does this organization make a difference?

Overview

Self-reported by organization

Our lunch programs (through our overseas partnership) have the impact of improving attendance to schools by 100%, resulting in an increase in literacy rate and reduced delinquency since kids were at school.

Our adult trade schools (through our overseas partnership) have resulted in vocational preparation of close to 50 mothers/year which have become entrepreneurs in small enterprises providing a better quality life for their family (shelter, food, education).

Program 1

Hispanic Children and Families outreach

Humanitarian Universal Connexions (HUCO) d.b.a Hispanic Children and Families Fund, serves the poor in three Hispanic countries.  HUCO provides resources to meet a variety of needs including: food, health care, materials for schools, lunch programs, school supplies, medicines, housing and shelter for the orphans, microenterprises loans, rehabilitation of disabled children, and emergency relief aid.  We implement these efforts through in-country local charitable organizations which have the know-how and expertise to execute all projects in the most cost-effective way. Our local partners, through the years, have developed a great capacity for service as a result of their expertise and excellent management of their programs. We are proud of the assistance we have provided them to continue with their worthy mission. Since our partners are well established charitable organizations, the expenses are minimized and the success is multiplied.
