The School program provides children in public schools with backpacks, notebooks, pencils, erasers, rulers and color pencils.
Education and health go hand in hand – and we think it’s important to also have this focus in our work.
In the Dominican Republic, the wealthier children attend private schools, while public schools are open to all. The challenge for the poorest is that they can not afford schooling equipment and uniforms – and without this they must not go to school. This year, the authorities have decided that they support the kids with some equipment and uniform – but the equipment is of poor quality – and for too many children – this is all they get.
We have provided more than 200 children with free School equipment. The children and their parents are very proud and Grateful.
If you would like to become a sponsor, the monthly amount of 40 kroners (5 USD) will cover the expenses of school equipment for two children trough a school year.
