RIPMinistries operates two schools in the Dominican Republic. These schools provide a Christ-based education to 122 children of Haitian descent. Due to unfortunate circumstances these children were not afforded the opportunity to attend public school. Subsequently, many of them are 9 and 10 years old and they are just now learning how to write their names. This is heartbreaking.
Our ministry is currently covering the operating costs of two locations and paying rent/utilities in both location. RIPMinistries is currently looking to purchase land, with the goal of constructing a school that will bring all the children together. This will reduce our operating costs and it will provide a much better venue from which to provide schooling, church services, and vocational training.
The projected cost of the project is $150,000.00. We have currently received $11,250 towards this project.
