Our children come from densely populated city barrios, so a field, even a small one, is a source of delight - a place they can run around, play games, and indulge in the king of Dominican games - soccer.

While the children enjoy sports and games on the field, they work hard in the classrooms as well,  for example, mastering math, which will give them a head start in their careers of choice. Close interaction with their teachers helps restore the trust that has either been missing or in some cases abused in the children's previous engagement with the adults around them.

The school also offers nutritious meals to ensure children get a balanced diet, as most come from homes where meat and other sources of protein, essential for physical and intellectual growth, are rare or missing altogether.
