Build a classroom
Outside of Casa Ana
Home to 208,857 people, Azua is located 97 km (60m) southwest of the Dominican capital. In 2007, with 101,458 children attending primary school in Azua, only 28,412 were registered in a secondary school. Children in Azua have very limited education resources. A lack of adequate after-school tutoring, sports programs, extra-curricular activities and age-appropriate entertainment leave children to wander the streets unsupervised; child prostitution and drug-use are rampant.
Casa Anna's back yard can become a cool and breezy outdoor classroom to serve more children if we raise money for supplies: outdoor chairs, all-weather tables, awnings, tenting for shade and rain protection. There is no money in our very limited start up budget for any of these items. If you choose to give us money for this we will be thrilled to begin spending it on this worthy expansion project. This is where I would enjoy after school tutoring.
