Our programs offer long-term solutions that empower underprivileged children in the Dominican Republic with access to education, technology, and other essential resources.

We provide tutoring and homework help to children who may not receive the individualized attention they need in their school settings. Our educational support helps children keep up with their studies and stay engaged in their learning, which is critical for their long-term success.
Computer and Internet Access
Many children in the Dominican Republic do not have access to reliable technology or internet connectivity. We offer computer access and internet resources to help bridge this gap, providing children with the tools they need to learn and explore the world around them.
Meals and Snacks
We believe that access to healthy food is a fundamental right for every child. We offer nutritious meals and snacks to help combat food insecurity, which is sadly all too common in the communities we serve. With healthy meals, children can grow and thrive both mentally and physically.
Meet some of the Kids
Many children come to us for homework help, to play games, sing karaoke, and to simply escape the heat. We offer a safe and welcoming space for children to relax, learn, and have fun. Our youth centers provide a positive environment where kids can build relationships with our staff and other children and develop important life skills.

Chica, an 8-year-old girl whose real name is unknown, is a frequent visitor at our center. She often comes in to get help with her homework and to watch videos on YouTube. Her favorite videos are of BTS, the Korean pop group. Despite her young age, Chica has a strong determination to learn and often spends her afternoons at our center so she can improve her academic skills. We’re glad to be able to offer a safe and welcoming space for children like Chica to come and learn.
