New School Spaces Opened for Children

Each day of school is an opportunity for a student to explore, learn and dream of a better future for herself. But the impact doesn't end there. As children become educated, they not only change their own lives, but transform their families and communities as well. You can send a child to school, and you can change the world.

Elena Carvajal
La Romana, Dominican Republic

Meet Elena Carvajal from the city of La Romana, Dominican Republic. Elena saw a need in her community. With sadness she watched as many children wandered the streets because the nearest school was a 30min walk away and parents didn't want their young children walking that far so they kept them home. The educator in her could not help herself, so she would bring them to her home and start teaching them.

Thanks to people like you Elena has been able to grow her little school in her home with a few children to one with almost 100 children, employing four qualified teachers.

"Teaching is my passion. I want to see all the children in my community have access to a quality education. My dream is that one of my students will become the next President of the Dominican Republic."
