Project Esperanza

Project Esperanza is a non-profit organization that began as and remains a Virginia Tech student organization. Project Esperanza serves to connect the Blacksburg, Virginia community and the Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic community through service. Our programs are designed to work toward breaking the cycle of poverty present among the lower social classes in these two communities, as well toward breaking the cycle of apathy present among the upper classes.

Maranatha School in Ouanaminthe, Haiti
 
Maranatha School educates the most impoverished children of Ouanaminthe, Haiti, where the government fails to provide free public education to all. Funds go to pay basic school expenses which are primarily materials, housing costs, and teacher salaries. We hope to raise enough to include school meals as many children are hungry, making it difficult for them to learn. Parents currently pay $5 per child per year and this is the only funds the school has to work with! project reportread updates from the field
