Striking Out Poverty in the Dominican Republic
We want to see baseball end poverty in the Dominican Republic. Nine innings to end poverty in nine of the poorest communities in the Dominican Republic: Mirador, Camaron, Los Caños, Placer Bonito, Cruz de Vicente, Vellecito, LA 23, Batista, and Margara II.
Thank you for partnering with Food for the Hungry to end poverty in these nine communities in the DR through clean water projects, community centers, vocational training, and baseball projects.
Providing clean water is life changing for communities in the Dominican Republic. Many of these communities lack access to clean water and therefore are exposed to water borne illnesses that keep children out of school, elevate medical costs and continue the cycle of poverty. A permanent water infrastructure will provide the means to purify their current water source giving them access to safe and clean water.
Community centers provide a place for the community to meet and form relationships and for adult education. Vocational training helps provide opportunities for community members to gain employment or start a business. In many of these communities, the children don’t have a safe place to play their favorite sport: baseball. FH will provide baseball equipment and fields in the communities.
Together, we can end poverty in these nine communities in the DR.
