PROVIDING OPPORTUNITY FOR SELF IMPROVEMENT CABARETE DOMINICAN REP
goal: "To help the people of Barrio Blanco" ..a community of + - 360 people in Cabarete, Dominican Republic. We are tearing down shacks made from scraps of rusted tin and anything possible, and that have no septic system. The original homes are subject to ongoing flooding inside with over 1 foot of water. We are building new homes built with concrete and block, elevated above ground 3 feet with a septic system built below floor. Donations are used to buy building materials. Residents provide the labor. My (Ron) family pays all administrative, fundraising and non-building costs. Donors know which home(s) are built with their donation. No paid staff.
