Founded, powered and led by women, HA.P.I (HAblar Para Integrar, “Speak to Integrate”) is a first-of-its-kind educational organization.
Our mission is to empower immigrant Latino adults via our ultra-rapid teaching methods to reach their personal and professional goals for themselves and their families, hence directly contributing to the diversity and economic growth of Arizona.
WE ARE HA.P.I!
In 2012, after a successful
professional life, the founder, Anne de France, set out to give back to Arizona. Joining forces with Galaxie Andrews, they identified an obvious problem: The isolation of the Latino community from the American community due to the language barrier.
That is when they sat down and designed HA.P.I (HAblar Para Integrar = Speak to Integrate).
