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 8th grade. Your donation helps allow us to providing schooling for them every weekday of the school year from 8am to 1pm, complete with a meal.
Level 1 - an annual donation of $150 which covers daily lunch, a uniform shirt, and some materials.
Level 2 - a monthly donation of $30 which covers daily lunch, a uniform shirt, some materials, and contribution to teacher's salary.
Level 3 - a monthly donation of $50 which covers daily lunch, a uniform shirt, some materials, contribution to teacher's salary, and contribution to the facilities.
