Eva M. Russell School is located in one of the poorest provinces of the Dominican Republic, teaching impoverished youth of the richness of God’s redeeming love. From its humble beginnings in a chicken coop, it has been transformed into a beautiful school that serves more than 210 youth from pre-school to 9th grade. And the school now includes a high school discipleship program and access to university scholarships for high school graduates. read more »
Site Partnership allows for services that reach beyond the basics of what Child Sponsorship provides, supplying resources for trauma training and therapy, nutritionists, social workers, educational counselors, discipleship, and more.
The Eva Russell School has grown and changed dramatically over the past three decades. The program has grown to serve over 200 students a day through ninth grade, and the facility has expanded to have a library, computer lab, a water purification system and a dental clinic. Impoverished families from the community appreciate the no-cost quality education and holistic care offered by the school and many students begin a serious relationship with Christ during these formative years at the Eva Russell School.
