La Romana, Dominican Republic
Grand Opening: April 2nd 2014

Orphaned children in the Dominican Republic face critical challenges ranging from malnutrition and homelessness, to poor access to education. Due to Dominican Republic’s limited governmental funds, orphanages become the only opportunity to better a child’s life.

The first project of the Maestro Cares Foundation was in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The dire need of assistance displayed by the youth in this area motivated the creation of Maestro Cares Foundation. In association with Orfanato Niños de Cristo, the orphanage now accommodates up to 50 orphaned, abandoned or previously abused boys from 10 months to 18 years of age. The campus includes dormitories, classrooms, a health clinic, a dining hall and recreational facilities. Maestro Cares Foundation continues to support this facility through educational programs, staff, therapists, recreational programs and operational expenses.

Orfanato Niños de Cristo is dedicated to improving the lives of the children, focusing on education, health and housing, as most of the children spend their entire childhood and young life in the orphanage.

“They have fully supported us. They built a new home for us. We now have dormitories and beds for everyone, enough bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining room, a room to do homework, music, computers, a library, a baseball field and basketball court. We have enough space now and everyone is very happy.”
