Pontezuela


Pontezuela is located in Santiago, the second-largest city in the Dominican Republic. Despite the fact that Santiago is a well-developed province, it has very impoverished sectors, with Pontezuela being one of them. The population is a majority of Haitian immigrants, who have large families, but lack the resources to provide for them. Many of the people work in the city cleaning houses, do informal vendor work (like fruits and vegetables), or in construction. Children lack supervision from the adults who move to the city to work daily or weekly, which makes them vulnerable to crime. Many of the children also do not attend schools due to lack of birth certificates, resources for materials and uniforms, and the lack of tutors who responsibly prioritize education. The CarePoint is a place for the children here to be loved and shown hope for a good future.

Dominican Republic


The Dominican Republic shares Hispaniola Island with the country of Haiti in the Caribbean region. Although the Dominican Republic has advanced telecommunications systems and a great transportation infrastructure, unemployment, corruption, and inconsistent electric service remain major problems.

GIVING HOPE IS SIMPLE, YET EFFECTIVE
