We are ALL HUMAN BEINGS and our human rights must be protected.  Miel y Canela Foundation's mission is to educate children, youth, and adults on the knowledge of their human rights, the importance of each, and how to protect them for themselves and others.


Sadly, our beautiful city of Tampa is ranked third in the nation on human trafficking.  Miel y Canela Foundation invites you to partner in this cause so we not only eliminate Tampa as "third in human trafficking", but in positioning it as FIRST IN THE NATION IN HUMAN RIGHTS - A MODEL CITY.  This means becoming a defender city on all 30 Articles of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.  Together we can ensure our streets, schools, communities, children, youth, families, ALL, can live with dignity, equality, tolerance, and peace.  Together we can create safer and healthier communities. 

Defending Human Rights for All

Miel y Canela Foundation's mission is to improve the quality of life of low-income and migrant families in the community it serves. Poverty, homelessness, victims of abuse, human trafficking, housing - all issues being guided under the United Nation's Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

"The term “human rights” was mentioned seven times in the United Nation's founding Charter, making the promotion and protection of human rights a key purpose and guiding principle of the Organization. In 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights lay down the principles that brought human rights into the realm of international law. Since then, the Organization has diligently protected human rights through legal instruments and on-the-ground activities."

Miel y Canela Foundation defends Human rights and ensures they reflect the minimum standards necessary for people to live with dignity. Human rights give people the freedom to choose how they live, how they express themselves, and what kind of government they want to support, among many other things. Human Rights also guarantees' people the means necessary to satisfy their basic needs, such as food, housing, and education, so they can take full advantage of all opportunities.

Youth empowerment is of utmost importance to our mission because OUR YOUTH HAVE A VOICE THAT NEEDS TO BE HEARD AND CONSIDERED - WE NEED TO INVEST IN THEIR PRESENT TO ENSURE THEM A BETTER AND BRIGHTER TOMORROW. Please join us - we need your support. Uniting will minimize the impact of the violations of our rights in so many areas. Supporting our programs, your contribution of ANY SIZE will impact our youth, our families and our communities.
