We are a child sponsorship program that pairs sponsors, people like you, with children in need in the Dominican Republic. His Hands for the Dominican Republic works alongside our Dominican partners, Pastor Felix Hernandez of Con Cristo Se Puede and his wife Maria, Pastor Salvador Mordan of Iglesia De Convertidos A Cristo and his wife, Angela, and Pastor Tanis Derolous of Iglesia Bautista Cristo para las Naciones and his wife, Esther. Their goals are to mentor the children in their ministries spiritually, morally, and educationally so they can become the next generation of productive citizens making a positive impact on their country. When a child is sponsored for $20 [Con Cristo and Los Brujan] or $25 [Colegio Moriah] per month through His Hands for the Dominican Republic the schools receives the support to help with:
Sponsors receive a photo and personal information about the child they are helping including information about how to correspond with their child, if they choose to do so. Sponsors can choose the age and/or gender of the child they would like to sponsor and may continue to sponsor the same child from year to year, as long as the child remains in the program. Please note: since the school at Los Brujanes (Empowering Action) is a preschool only with three preschool grades, the children who attend that school will only be available for sponsorship for a maximum of 3 years,. 100% of your sponsorship donation goes to meet the needs of the children in these ministries. None of it goes toward the administrative expenses of this program in the US.
Sponsoring a child in the Dominican Republic is truly a blessing not only to the child, but to the sponsor as well. The opportunity exists for sponsors to join one of the mission teams traveling to the Dominican Republic and experience the joy of meeting their sponsored child!
