Pedro Martinez Foundation
Pedro’s commitment to providing support, assistance, and educational programs that positively impact the lives of children and families in vulnerable communities began with a donation of land. In 2007, the first program launched – Hay Poder en Aprender (There is Power in Learning) and brought new life to the community. Each day, children who otherwise faced abuse, teen pregnancy, or crime, raced through the doors to receive education and healthy meals, participate in arts, sports, and recreation, and most importantly, to feel loved. With a holistic approach to education, our children began developing a sense of identity and empowerment while learning valuable vocational and life skills.
