The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country with a rich culture. However, over 40 percent of the inhabitants are living in poverty, according to recent World Bank estimates. In many cases, the children are often unable to afford schools that provide a quality education. But you can help. Our Vancouver skin care practice has joined forces with Operation International to establish a fundraiser to aid these children, and your donation could make the difference in one special child’s life.
While public schools are common in the DR, they are sorely lacking in materials and teachers. The instructors available are also often undereducated, and they may not receive much compensation for their efforts. For many kids, a private school education, which costs only $20 a month, can mean the difference between continuing the cycle of poverty and escaping it.
Join us in helping these eager, hopeful children receive the education they want and deserve. Our fundraiser will continue until December 19th, and every little bit counts. Donate now, and help to improve the future for an entire generation of people.
