Cascajal Foundation was originally founded in order to preserve, teach, and celebrate Colombia’s pacific coast customs in the United States.
Nonetheless, in the year 2009 we noticed that most of the youngest members of the hispanic community had no awareness, limited access, and little encouragement to pursue higher learning opportunities. Thus, we felt the need to address this issue by creating awareness and facilitating the access to better educational opportunities so that these youngsters attend Colleges and Universities around USA. To fulfill this need, under the leadership of its current president Geneticist Heladio Ibarguen, the organization shifted its focus to raise awareness and provide that initial moral and financial support for education to lower-income Hispanic community members.
Now, with the help of Cascajal Foundation leaders and the support of the community, We are helping hispanic youth gain college access by offering scholarships, counseling, mentoring, and raising awareness within hispanic communities in Houston, TX.
Our hope is that by 2020, Cascajal Foundation will be a leading institution in the United States in charge of creating and implementing programs to promote and support higher education for young hispanic with our emphasis in Colombian Descents. as well as having a group of professionals responsible for the socioeconomic development of their community and country.
