Fishermen making progress as Coral Gardeners!

We're really exctied to share that two fishermen have been already hired to be part of a coral planting team and one more fisherman was interviewed for possible hiring. The fishermen have been gardening and planting corals over the last two months.

An estimated total of 330 meters of tissue have been sown, distributed in approximately 429 fragments of coral. We're in the process of buying a 26 foot boat and a 60 HP engine, to help with the fishermen transportation and and improve the monitoring of the already planted corals and future gardering works. 

We're very happy about how this project is doing and very optimistic about the upcoming results. Here are some great pictures of our recent efforts. Let's keep saving Corals!

Making a change in the community

Dear donor, may you receive a warm greeting. We would like to reiterate our gratitude for your support, we consider you a key partner in this project and are grateful that you share our vision for the future of the students of the Ann & Ted Kheel Polytechnic School. 

You just like us believe that education is one of the strongest means that is capable of bringing about the desired change in society, it is helpful in developing a generation of virtuous individuals. Thus in this way, education helps in contributing to the development of good human beings. 

We are involved in the developing stages of our project. The details are the following:   

  • We have already purchased 36 lockers to store the students' belongings in the classrooms. The orderly and comfortable class rooms promote the discipline, concentration and better performance of students and teachers. Please see the picture attached
  • We are enthusiastically preparing the 13th Graduation ceremony
  • Counting on the company ETC-Iberoamerica as supplier, we have started to implement the Microsoft certification program, this offers to the students an internationally accredited certification granted by the Microsoft headquarters. The benefits are: More and much better employment opportunities, the validation of the national universities of the academic subjects impacted by the certification program, among others. The first stage, a sort of pilot program, is focused on Microsoft Office and 30 students are participating (second and third high school levels). Please see the picture attached.

If you have any comment, advice or question, please let us know and we will respond as best we can.

In the upcoming months we will keep you updated on the progress of our project.

 Thank you very much again for your support !

Taking care of the children population

Dear Donor, may you receive a warm greeting. Thank you very much for your donation, it is so rewarding to arrive at the pediatric center any morning and see so many children in need receiving medical attention and the alleviation on their mothers' faces as well

This is mainly you have helped us achieve !, your contribution is really impacting thousands of low income families living in the deprived communities of the Punta Cana tourist destination.

 The ultrasound services will be available soon when the equipment is properly installed. Nowadays  the clinic is offering health prevention programs, outpatient consultations, dental care, vaccination, emergency, laboratory and pharmacy services.

The staff of the pediatric center is committed to serve the children in the community and meet the needs of each family, going above and beyond to make sure that they are getting the help that they need. 

The X ray machine is already installed, we are currently working on the installation of the software. Please see the picture attached.

In the other hand, the staff can better manage the inventory of the medical supplies and the medicines thanks to the software that has been installed at the center. Please see the picture attached.

In the last March two pediatricians from Akron Children's Hospital conducted internships and training sessions for the medical staff of the pediatric center. Please see the pictured attached

There are still many goals to meet, we hope that you will continue to partner with us in our commitment to achieve them:

  • The addition of an unit to serve children with special health condition (autism, physical disability, learning difficulty,)
  • Missing medical equipment
  • Staff training programs
  • Constant supply of medical supplies and medications.

We will keep you informed about the progress of the project. If you have any comment, advice or question, please feel free to direct them to us and we will answer as best we can. 

Thank you very much again for your outstanding support

Best wishes,
