Challenge

With a persistent child poverty rate of 58%, Puerto Rico is home to hundreds of vulnerable communities. Children living in poor communities often lack access to high-quality basic services such as education and nutrition. The lack of nutritious food hinders child development and for many children, it could be at the root of poor academic performance.

Solution

Boys & Girls Clubs of Puerto Rico has embarked on a quest to eradicate child poverty in Puerto Rico. Your donation will ensure that our participants receive both high-quality educational services and nutritious hot meals with the ultimate goal of improving their wellbeing and their chances of breaking out of poverty.

Long-Term Impact

Our dream for each one of the children that participate in our programs is that they become responsible self-sufficient citizens who make a positive contribution to their communities and to Puerto Rico.
