Dear donor, may you receive a warm greeting. Your contribution has played a key role in our success in helping deprived local youth achieve a brighter future by providing them access to good quality education.
We at the Grupo Puntacana Foundation are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of donors like yourself who answer the call to give.
We are involved in the developing stages of our project. The details are the following:
Aiming to improve the operational efficiency, a modern multifunction printer has been installed in the administrative office (copying, printing and scanning). Also we are purchasing lockers to store the students' belongings in the classrooms.
In terms of improving facilities, we have finished the habilitation of the space under the stairs to store materials that are used in the crafts workshop
Thanks to our alliance with Siempre Más Foundation, 23 students and the sports teacher participated in an inspiring expedition to Pico Duarte (the highest peak in the Dominican Republic and all the Caribbean islands). The expedition emerged as an initiative of Karim Mella, president of that foundation, he is the only Dominican who has climbed Mount Everest twice. The expeditioners were encouraged to contribute positively to the development of the country by receiving motivational talks (environmental conservation, national pride, discipline, leadership, personal achievements, among other topics).
