Fundacion Futuro Lleno de Esperanza

Organization Description: 

Our ministry, Futuro Lleno de Esperanza, is a faith and education based foundation that works with impoverished Dominicans and displaced Haitians. We have 4 schools and 5 churches in the Santiago area. We have 300 children in our schools - most of whom are illegal Haitian immigrants who would not otherwise be able to study. Our school focused on Dominican education is located next to the Santiago landfill and many of our students have parents who work in the landfill. We are also present in Cap Haitien. Haiti with a church and school, as well. We believe in dignity over charity and are committed to Christian education as education empowers humans and Christ sustains us and gives us hope for our future. We also host Poderosa Mujer, a project formed to empower women in our communities by imparting job skills training, education and community-building activities for women.
