In 2020 HLF granted financial support to community partner Together For Better for a library at the FUCPE school in the Dominican Republic. The school wanted to create a mini-library containing textbooks and reference materials on mathematics, geography, history, and other foundational subjects. This library will supplement learning for all students at the FUCPE School, helping the Foundation FUCPE support child education for years to come.
In a year like 2020, we wanted to let some of the pictures and headlines we have collected throughout the year speak for themselves. Stay safe & healthy. Happy Holidays & New Year from Team HLF!
We love hearing from our friends, Thank You Garden of Dreams!
The HLF #YoungAmbassadors have an important message for all the essential workers showing up and keeping us safe as we fight this pandemic.
