Unlike many large, faceless, non-profit organizations, The Esperanza Project is a small program run by founders and directors, Anthony and Fiona Austin who created the organization in 2009, out of a perceived need to provide a much needed educational and extra-curricular program in the town, giving children and teens an opportunity to explore, create, and inspire, whilst empowering them to grow academically and socially, in a safe, supportive, hands-on learning environment.
The Esperanza Project is located in the quiet, picturesque town of Cabrera on the beautiful North coast of the Dominican Republic. Cabrera is a small, unique town with very little tourism infrastructure, despite having some of the most beautiful beaches in the country all within a 10 to 20 minute drive of the downtown area. Along with the exceptional beaches, Cabrera also boasts home to several fresh water pools, waterfalls, and lush vegetation. Cabrera is a very special and unique little town which The Esperanza Project is incredibly proud to call ‘home’.
