Cabarete, Dominican Republic is vibrant, tourist town with a new-age spirit, adventure sports and a rich social life. But for the native kids born and raised here, a decent future can seem impossible. That’s because they lack things most of us take for granted: basic language skills, new experiences, positive role-models, and a vision for a bright future. Why should only tourists enjoy life in Cabarete, while local kids sit on the sidelines and slip towards teen-pregnancy, mistreatment of girls and women, crime and drug abuse?
In 2015, we opened an after-school program in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. There were few options for boys to learn life skills and values and create job opportunities for themselves. We started with nine boys in a 375 sf space. Today we work with 70+ energetic boys in a beautiful 3,400 sf space. We are capable of serving many more...
We support boys on their journey to becoming positive men, husbands, and fathers. Our program is available free of charge to Dominicans and Haitians. We focus on non-academic life skills and values development that build confidence and self-esteem. So far, we’ve reached over 100 boys. We are motivated to make a lasting difference.
We’re diligently working to achieve sustainability and we’re getting closer. Our operating budget for 2019 is $116,078. Your involvement and support will allow us to add more boys, hire more instructors, and support our program budget — giving kids an opportunity for a brighter future they otherwise would not have.
