Friends of Hope International, Inc was founded by Esteban Almonte, Carmen L. Fernandez & Liony Batista. Having worked in humanitarian disaster relief, project development and the collaboration of sustainable projects in Latin America and the Caribbean, Mr. Batista, Mrs. Fernandez & Mr. Almonte felt the need to work independently with a group of like-minded individuals to help empower others to forge their way out of poverty.
