A few words about

What We Do

Our projects

Our organization is involved in various projects in the area of Las Galeras in the Dominican Republic.

The action of the foundation is mainly focused on minors living in the area of Las Galeras and in the peninsula of Samana. We are working specifically to make positive changes in three areas:
Health – through the launch of a medical clinic
Housing – by providing aid to women helping them build their own cement homes
Education – from kindergarten to adult learning.

Education

In a building on land which the Foundation has purchased, we collaborate with a kindergarten which takes care of the young, enabling mothers to return to work knowing their child is in safe hands. Together we run child psychology initiatives as well as extracurricular activities including languages, art, and summer camp.

With more funds, we can help more young people get an education, helping them positively transform their own life, their families’ lives, as well as the community.

Health care

On the 1.5 acres of land where the bilingual school “Las Ballenitas ” is situated, we are planing on also building a small hospital.
In an area where doctors a scarce and expensive, our goal is to open a clinic that runs 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Opening such a hospital in the Dominican Republic requires fonds of about 3.5 to 4 million Dollars. We already have collected donations of aproximately half a million dollars for this cause.

We have started to help women to build their very own homes of cement blocks which, unlike traditional shacks, will not be damp ridden and blown away with the high winds. 

The criteria is making certain the woman involved can obtain clear ownership of the land, with or without our help. Often the case here is the squatter who builds and then the true owner appears to claim the new house. The Foundation has managed to build or start 5 small houses, which have had an enormous impact on the families involved.

We have already purchased these buildings that used to belong to a Japanese ONG. In 2024 we found a new purpose for them: 

There are 10 buildings and facilities for staff that are now being used as educational facilities by our new partner CSA, who provides education for adults, especially women, in Las Galeras to prepare them for future jobs.
