We would like to highlight the work of one organization in our Network, the Cubanakoa Foundation, founded by Jesus Puerto of Soul de Cuba Cafe, that works to build a Honolulu - Havana Sister City Association.
JesusPuerto is of Afro Cuban heritage and his two Soul de Cuba cafes, one in Honolulu and one in New Haven, CT, are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Afro Cuban cuisine and culture. He is a former Peace Corps and United Nations volunteer who has also directed programs for Habitat for Humanity in Samoa and in the countries of the Caribbean and Central America for the Peace Corps. As Jo An says, "I have loved working on this project with Jesus and with everyone. All was done with great joy!
