Help us equip children for success.
Many children we work within the shantytowns of the Dominican Republic dream of becoming baseball players and nurses, yet, they cannot afford to attend and succeed in school. The numerous challenges (lack of inspiration, resources, and support) these children encounter limits or prohibits them from pursuing opportunities that may help them build a better future and quality of life.
Education should not be a luxury. With your support, the Dare2B team will equip, inspire, and empower children struggling to survive in the shantytowns of the Dominican Republic to break their cycle of poverty.
At Dare2B we believe that a child's current situation should not define their future. With your support, we can help children create opportunities for a better tomorrow. The funds raised for this school ready campaign will include full-service programming, basic essentials, and medicine for children living in the shantytowns of Montecristi.
Below you will find a breakdown of what is included in our cost.
