A Passion For Giving Back
CMN is passionate about fostering an environment that gives back. With this in mind, CMN President and CEO, Henry Cárdenas, co-founded Maestro Cares Foundation in 2012 with help from music icon Marc Anthony (pictured above). The vision was to bring needed aid to orphaned and disadvantaged children across Latin America and the United States. Through the unwavering generosity of its partners, donors, and employees, Maestro Cares Foundation is on its way to creating a legacy in Latin America through the construction of schools, orphanages, and community centers that provide a safe and nurturing place for children to live and grow into self-sufficient individuals.
The foundation completed its first major project in early 2014: a full service orphanage in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Since then, Maestro Cares Foundation has opened five additional homes in Barranquilla, Colombia; Toluca and Guadalajara, Mexico; Ponce, Puerto Rico and La Paz, Bolivia. Together, these homes cater to hundreds at-risk children, providing a place to call home where they are loved and cared for, and receive direct access to educational and recreational facilities that have rekindled the hopes and dreams of the children and the community.
To date the foundation has completed construction on 10 projects in 9 different countries, and 6 additional projects underway in El Salvador, Guatemala, USA, Chile and two new ones in Colombia.
