I recently heard a presentation of the Fundacion Abriendo Caminos. I was impressed. Those making the presentation were three students of the center. Better sales people you could not have found. This is a NGO that has given a break to children living in northern Santo Domingo low-income area of Villas Agricolas. With the support of the center, those kids are making their parents and the center proud. Lots works against youths, be they of wealthy or poor families. Note that we have one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates. But that is one great operation with great sincere leadership that is making a difference. They help children 7-15 years. Check out their website for ideas of how you could become involved as a volunteer or contributor. Those in charge speak fluent English and French.
