The Dominican Republic’s current education system is a failing one. Most students only have access to overcrowded classrooms, with overwhelmed teachers, working with minimal to non-existent resources.

We are working to give these children a better future, but we need your help! We are currently in need of monetary and/or material donations for the program as a whole, as well as individual student sponsorships.

Unlike many other sponsorship programs, we offer you the chance to communicate with your sponsor child as much as you like through email, letters, and video. There is even the opportunity to meet your child in person, if you choose.

With our program, there is no middle man. 100% of your money is used toward sending that child to school.

Cost to sponsor student:

$40 USD per month for 10 months


$400 USD for full school year

If you cannot afford to sponsor a child, The Esperanza Project accepts material and monetary donations of any size to be used towards the general running of the school.

If you are interested in making a monetary donation, you can do so via the Paypal button below.

If you are interested in making a material donation, please contact us and we can help you to organize getting those materials down to the Dominican Republic.

Thank you in advance for your support. The Esperanza Project would not exist without it.
