Non-profit and community-based organizations continue to respond to the multiple emergencies in Puerto Rico. Such as hurricanes Irma and María in 2017, the earthquakes at the beginning of this year and the crisis due to the pandemic since March. Reinventing ourselves has been the way to continue guaranteeing services, supporting the transformation of girls, boys, youth and adults, but also attending the needs of thousands of people in the middle of different crises.
This project is still in the construction phase. We have hired the construction company to continue towards the next phase, which has been delayed due to the effects that the pandemic has had on the regular rhythm of our operations, that of our suppliers and contractors. We will be sharing with the entire GlobalGiving community pictures of our progress, step by step. We are excited to advance a horizon of resilience and sustainability for the communities of the most disadvantaged sectors of Puerto Rico.
What do we need to complete our project?
We are moving towards having the platform build in concrete for our cafeteria, which will function as an emergency response center, serving the basic needs of our communities. We dream that it will become a space with clean energy, with recycling mechanisms, reusing water and waste. It is a very challenging initiative because we are building a project with a strategic view of resilience seen in an integral way and, at the same time, adapting to new realities due to the emergency. That is why we continue working on proposals and initiatives that support this project. We trust in turning the Cafeteria of Nuestra Escuela in Caguas into a point of reference for the community in the event of possible or future emergencies.
