THERE ARE 305 CHILDREN IN THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC HOPING FOR A SPONSOR LIKE YOU.

While the Dominican Republic continues to develop economically, poverty persists in many communities, preventing children and youth from growing and reaching their full potential.

VisionTrust has been working in the Dominican Republic since our ministry launched in 1997. We serve children and youth from preschool to high school , including an orphanage for abandoned and abused children, as well as a school for deaf and hearing-impaired children where they can learn among supportive peers and teachers fluent in sign language. We offer schools and learning centers in low-income communities in Santo Domingo to children surrounded by drugs, gangs, and prostitution. We also work in rural communities lacking access to stable work opportunities and proper medical care.  Children benefit from quality education, tutoring, spiritual guidance, food, clean water, and medical care.
