The Good Samaritan Inc. Team
Location: Esperanza, Dominican Republic
Issue Area: Community Development
According to UNESCO reports from 2010, the Dominican Republic has one of the highest out-of-school rates for children under 12 in Latin America. In addition, girls experience consistent disadvantage in accessing education, and 12% of adults are illiterate.
The Good Samaritan Inc. offers opportunities for kids in the DR to interact with native English speakers in order to improve their language skills and also to build a global paradigm that can prevent poverty. When The Good Samaritan students and Pepperdine students join together, they are able to better understand the world and our place within it.
Our team will help prepare health and hygiene lessons, develop baseball skills, and strengthen English skills. Additionally, we will visit public schools and nearby communities to better understand the Esperanza community and the sustainable development efforts happening in the region.
By supporting our team, you provide an opportunity to Pepperdine students and students in the Dominican Republic to connect and make our world a little smaller. Please consider donating today.
