The Dominican Republic is often called the “Jewel of the Caribbean”.
In partnership with local churches and national government, One More Child has helped construct a community that includes 94 single-family homes, a police substation, a community transformation center and a church plant. These facilities and infrastructure offer stability to a rural area that suffers from low reading proficiency and responsive paternal support (according to UNICEF).
To supplement the community needs, we have created a robust sponsorship program, which includes a monthly food basket for sponsored children, training for parents in health, nutrition, parenting skills and regular opportunities to hear the gospel. We also have a feeding program for nursing mothers and young children through age 5. Lives are being changed in the Dominican Republic because of people like you. Come on a mission trip with us and help us continue in our discipleship and evangelism efforts!
