Empower Cuban youth.

Our mission is to empower youth in Cuba to become authors of their own future through technology, resources, information, and solidarity.

Raíces de Esperanza means "Roots of Hope." We are a network of 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 New York, D.C., and Miami.

One of our main projects has been Cell Phones for Cuba (C4C), a program designed to boost the connectivity of young people on the island and promote greater communication throughout Cuba. Our apolitical campaign has drawn on our network to bring about measurable improvements in the lives of Cuban youth. This project has been broaded to include other technology items such as USBs, laptops, and tablets.

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).
