Outreach360 Community Health Team
Location: Monte Cristi, Dominican Republic
Issue Area: Community Health
The Dominican Republic has the second largest economy in the Caribbean and Central American region, primarily due to its high sugar production. With a large gap between the rich and the poor, the DR ranks number 14 in the world in resource mismanagement. While education for children between 5 and 14 years of age is free, kids only attend school half a day, compounding the illiteracy and education gap between social castes.
In the DR, our team will work with our longstanding partner Outreach360. Their mission is to transform and empower individuals, families, communities, and countries through education. English is a highly sought-after skill in the Dominican Republic, and there are too few teachers to meet the need. Our team will be living at an Outreach 360 facility and traveling to a nearby school or community center to teach English and inspire the children of the DR through lessons on community health, something too many of us take for granted.
Please join us in this journey by supporting us through prayer and finances today.
