Colegio un Lugar de Esperanza, which means A Place of Hope, was founded under A Heart for the Nations International minstry. As the only private school in our community, our vision is to offer a quality education to any student who has the desire to learn. We believe that every child has the right to a quality education and, as educators, our desire is provide an atmosphere where our students are valued and encouraged to grow not only academically, but also spiritually and socially as well. Our curriculum and programs engage and challenge our students, ages 3-10, to think critically while also making them aware of the social issues that the both the Dominican Republic and world face. Our hope is that the instruction and nourishment we provide here will not only change the lives of our students and their families, but also transform our community and nation, breaking the cycle of poverty and broken families.
We are currently looking to raise $30,000 to finish out the 2019-2020 school year. This money will go directly to help cover our teachers' salaries and health benefits and fund fund the education of our students. With your support, we can ensure that every child has the possibility of receiving an education, offer scholarships, discounted bus services to and from school, and provide other support, such as counseling, to the families of our students to reduce the financial burden of education.
