Poverty in the Dominican Republic

Kids growing up in poverty in the Dominican Republic face many grim issues, especially woefully inadequate health services, a high teen pregnancy rate, low quality schools, high unemployment for young adults and rampant crime.

That's why we focus on providing medical and dental care, educational assistance, youth programs to help kids understand the consequences of risky behaviors, and skills and training to help them stay in school and eventually find jobs.

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