The Caribbean American Heritage Foundation of Texas (CAHFT), a nonprofit organization, founded in September 2010, is pleased to announce the official launch of the organization. CAHFT was established to exclusively promote public awareness and appreciation for the rich, lush Caribbean culture, heritage and traditions, highlighting both individual and collective contributions made by people of Caribbean heritage to the diverse multicultural society in Houston, Texas and the United States. CAHFT will work to and assist Texas Caribbean Organizations achieve their goals: business, financial and cultural objectives through strategic partnership and mutual collaborations, in the spirit of cooperation.
We plan to work tirelessly to establish the Caribbean Communities as ONE united voice while continuing to advocate on behalf of the peoples of the Caribbean and Caribbean decent. Our goal is to establish CAHFT as a social, cultural and economic presence in our diverse community, capable of bringing visible change and achievement through our advocacy, while embracing the rich diverse cultures of Houston and Texas. As part of our mission, we are seeking to engage the Caribbean- Americans, local elected leaders and general community to be part of the social development of the Caribbean community in the state of Texas and Gulf Coast region. CAHFT will empower our youth by organizing events to inspire and teach them about their rich Caribbean Culture and assist in passing on our rich heritage to the next generations.
Finally, we plan to recognize and annually celebrate National Caribbean-American Heritage Month, June of every year; this celebration will highlight the achievements of Caribbean-Americans in Houston, to celebrate the rich heritage of the Caribbean and to spur tourism and interest in the culture through a well organized, highly promoted and marketed month-long celebration. Through our collaborative efforts, the Caribbean community in Houston and Texas plan to continue positively contributing to our society while promoting the rich culture and heritage of the Caribbean.
