We are working to finish building 3 large Mariposa families new homes. All these families have long standing relationships with the Mariposa DR Foundation and have worked and/or volunteered their time to support our work and their daughters. These families are quite large, but do not have enough space nor quality living conditions to ensure healthy, productive living environments.
Mariposas and future Mariposas who share beds with multiple siblings, inadequate flooring and plumbing are not able to sleep well, study well, live well. Mariposa DR Foundation is committed to improving the homes for these families and our Mariposas in order to provide a healthier, more stable living environment.
Funds raised will be used to finish construction on 3 homes for Mariposa families. One of the families benefitting currently share 1 bedroom for 5 young children and their single mother. Another home will house a new young mother, her infant child and close relatives. These new homes will be safe, stable and healthy places for our Mariposas and their families to thrive!
Investing in the education, health and empowerment of a girl today means that she will have the tools to make smart choices that will better the lives of her children in the future.
