Poverty in the Dominican Republic

Children growing up in poverty in the Dominican Republic face grim realities such as poor living conditions, woefully inadequate education and health care, and a high teen-pregnancy rate.

That's why we focus on providing medical and dental care, educational assistance, lifeskills and leadership programs and scholarships to help teens achieve their dreams.

See how our program works and why we focus on health, education, empowerment and employment.
