The population has dwindled over the years as families have moved to urban areas seeking jobs and better opportunities for their children. Others, however, with no means of moving or who have lived in Haciendita all of their lives, need access to quality education, affordable healthcare and support to generate sustainable economic activity.

In the present circumstances, no one can afford to assume that someone else will solve their problems. Every individual has a responsibility to help guide our global family in the right direction. Good wishes are not sufficient; we must become actively engaged.”
