Obtaining education in the rural areas of the Dominican Republic poses many challenges. There is a lack of funds for the costs involved and a lack of transportation. In addition, there are poor roads, power shortages, and family needs to consider. Every Day Hope must go to where the people are and many times it involves some ingenuity!
Every Day Hope is providing community education, small business training, personal development workshops, and preventative health education. There is a process to all of this, and investigating the community and its leadership is the first step due to our belief in collaborative partnerships.
This is one of the many communities where Every Day Hope collaborated to organize a workshop for small business owners. This particular community’s efforts to collaborate were quite impressive. As a result, 25 local business owners were equipped with the knowledge and guidance to continue on the road to self-sustainability!
