Promoting action to build resilient and sustainable island communities

Friends of Puerto Rico

Friends of Puerto Rico is a non-partisan, non-profit organization based in Washington, DC, “with the focus of driving economic success through innovation and the allocation of investment to support entrepreneurship.” "They are committed to becoming a vehicle of prosperity by providing the needed support for education and entrepreneurship programs that can create real opportunities for the future generations of the island."

Why are you interested in joining the Global Island Partnership?

Friends of Puerto Rico has joined GLISPA as a member to be a part of a global network of experts in order to advance the island's economic growth post hurricane Maria and Irma. Given our unique situation with our status quo and relationship with the United States they need to work with strong partners such as GLISPA in order to succeed and bring growth collectively to our islands.

What is the main goal you want to advance through GLISPA?

Our main goal to advance through GLISPA is to work together, and truly have more allies and friends that will bring sustainable solutions to our islands and Puerto Rico. We also want to cross collaborate and share our expertise and network of supporters with GLISPA.

Friends of Puerto Rico’s membership representative is Angelique Sina, Co-Founder and President. www.friendsofpuertorico.org@friendsofpuertorico, @friendsofpr.
