Challenge

The Dominican Republic is one of the leading countries in child marriage, child trafficking, and teenage pregnancy. Many children in the Punta Cana area are engaged in commercial sexual exploitation, a practice that is fueled by the tourism industry, or are victims of sexual abuse. COIN has worked with the children, families, the broader community and the local government to identify these children and teenagers and provide psychological and medical attention to them, but more needs doing.

Solution

Given the exceptional results reached, Veron/Punta Cana's local government has donated 2000 square meters of land for the construction of a Center for the integral care of those children. The Center will provide psychological, legal and medical services as well as shelter for those children that need protection. It will also provide with education and leisure opportunities to help them overcome their situation and thrive. It will also work with the parents to improve their parenting skills.

Long-Term Impact

The project will rescue 100 children per year from commercial sexual exploitation and sexual abuse, allowing them to enjoy their infancy and develop healthy self-esteem that will help them achieve their goals in the future.
