What

The Sofia Program is a Norwegian aid organization where 100% of the contributions go to people in need in the Dominican Republic. The organization has various programs that provide medical assistance, birth control to young women, school equipment for children in public schools and improvement of houses in the poorest areas.

Why

While the Dominican Republic in so many ways feels like paradise, it’s also a country with a high percentage of teenage marriage, teenage births, oppression of women, inadequate public school systems and local people living under challenging medical conditions. There are also many people living in sheds that can not hold against wind or rain.

Being able to provide direct help to people who need it the most and see how much the contributions mean for each individual – gives us motivation and the courage to further develop the programs

Who

The organization is founded by a Norwegian family who has developed a close relationship with a Dominican family over several years. The daughters of both families are named Sofia. The programs are managed by the Norwegian doctor, Benedicte and her housband Eivind – with the help of a local leader and a local pharmacist.

There are no labor costs or administrative costs, so all contributions go to people in need. The work could not have been done without the donations we recieve.
