Project Report | Aug 9, 2022
Pursuing sales increasing

By Margarita Pilier | Project Coordinator

Dear Donor, please receive a warm greeting. We are writing to express our deepest thanks for your donation, contributions from donors like you provide the financial and moral support needed to accomplish our mission of improving the life conditions of a team of women who live in some deprived communities of the Punta Cana region.  

Thanks to your generosity and social awareness this project is able to empower women in vulnerable situations, through stimulation of their self-esteem and potential for achievement

Our handcraft project undoubtedly continues to contribute to reducing levels of marginality as it promotes the socioeconomic development of the artisans, their families and their communities. The search for economic benefit goes hand in hand with caring for the environment, through the reduction of pollution caused by uncontrollably discarded plastic covers.

One of the pillars of the project is the improvement of capacities, providing the artisans with the necessary skills to continue successfully inserting themselves in the micro-business world and at the same time promoting their personal growth and the achievement of their goals.

As a Foundation, we continue supporting the artisans by making it possible to sell their handicrafts at the stores of the Fundación Grupo Puntacana, Puntacana Resort and Club and some stores at the Punta Cana International Airport, as part of the marketing strategies.

The artisans are increasingly participating as exhibitors in activities that help them promote their products and boost sales.  Fortunately the sales ofr the handicrafts (bags, souvenirs, accessories) continue increasing due to the recovery of the local tourism industry.

In the last month the project has been focused on providing the logistical support for their participation in bazaars, fairs and various events. In the last months they participated by setting up an exhibition stand in:

  • International Airport Law Conference at the Westin Puntacana Resort & Club,
  • Beats by the Beach event at Playa Blanca-Puntacana Resort & Club ,
  • Artisan Fair, carried out by the Ministry of Industry and Commerce

 Please see the pictures attached 

We look forward to a continuing partnership with you. 

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.

There is no way to fully express our gratitude for your support.

 Thank you again

 Best wishes,
