Since 2006 we have taken on the responsibility of running a school in the city of Puerto Plata specifically designed for Haitian immigrant children that face difficulties going to public school. Since 2007 we have added the responsibility of a school in a rural "batey" community outside of the city.
Between the two schools we have around 225 students ranging in age from 3 to 18 years and in level from pre-K to 7th grade. Your donation of $100 per year helps allow us to providing schooling for them every weekday of the school year from 8am to 1pm, complete with a meal.
Sponsors receive a profile, annual student updates, thank you notes, and other communications and photos. Please write to Sponsor@EsperanzaMeansHope.org with any questions. And thank you.
**Note: This project encompasses three other projects which are Sponsor All Padre Granero Students, Sponsor All Munoz Students, and Help Our Top Students Get Through High School. Therefore, the amount raised encompasses the amount raised in those projects as well.
