Who We are

The mission of Coqui Charities is simple – to promote the social, economic and cultural welfare of Puerto Rico. We are a group of people who recognize that Puerto Rico is a special place, as unique as a coqui, and full of talented and vibrant people. The passage of the hurricane has been a very hard, collective time for our island and our goal is to help restore Puerto Rico and bring it back to its best. Coqui Charities brings to life a whole-hearted idea – the idea that together we can be the catalyst to bring Puerto Rico back to its splendor.

This is the story of Alexis E. Cruz

Andrea Kramer, Ballet Mistress from New Jersey, met Alexis E. Cruz Castro during the “Bailar al Sol” project in Puerto Rico. She saw a big potential and great talent in him. Kramer wanted to keep working with him at her School at Ballet Forté in New Jersey. Working together with Kramer, Coqui Charities found a place where he could stay for free and got Alexis a scholarship so he could take private lessons with Andrea at Forte Academy. He was sponsored by Coquí for 7 months until COVID-19 changed our lives. Nonetheless, Kramer keeps working with him online. During his time there he had a few obstacles, a different country, and a different language but that did not stop him.

Coquí Charities is committed to Puerto Rico’s wild and sea life.

Dr. Tony Mignucci received us at the Manatee Conservation Center where we witnessed the incredible work they do and the result of years of effort and care for these manatees and other species in danger. The Center is known for taking care of manatees, they receive different types of birds on a daily basis. From pelicans, falcones, owls, and querequequé, unfortunately they arrive at the center with health problems such as dehydration and hypoglycemia. Currently, they host five manatees, four turtles, together with the birds mentioned above. The daily care for these animals is very strict and detailed, but you could see the respect and love they recieve. Since 2009 they have partnered with Interamericana University of Bayamón and the Caribbean Stranding Network, the place takes care of sea life and wildlife
