Help me make a difference!
Hi, I’m Dery and I’m so excited to be joining this very special trip! The mission’s purpose is close to my heart! I know first-hand the value of a community of supporters when disparities influence the quality of life.
As a first generation American, I can never forget that both of my parents were raised in the shantytowns of the Dominican Republic. Their childhoods were devoid of access to a basic education and the simple amenities that we all take for granted.
My parents left their country with a dream that their children would have the opportunities they didn’t have as kids.
My parents’ experiences ignited a passion in me for equity and access. I dedicated myself to working tirelessly to help under-resourced parents, students and communities bridge the education and economic gaps.
Now, I am ready to go back to the country where my parents were born and support the kids who will inherit the future of our beloved Dominican Republic.
A donation from you will go a long way towards providing the basic resources for children in need. All donations will go towards supporting children’s education.
The children that we seek to help are a mirror image of me. We have an opportunity to serve as their extended community. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my community. So, I ask you to join us in extending a hand to some extraordinary future leaders.
Thank you in advance for support!
