While social distancing has been helpful in preventing the spread of COVID19 in the Dominican Republic, it has also been a source of distress for the impoverished seniors living in Bateyes communities. These seniors are faced with this unfortunate reality: by distancing themselves from their community, they are cutting themselves off from the financial support they rely on to acquire their most basic needs especially the most important ones that are food and medicine.

As youth and young ladies are introduced to the Days for Girls Program, they are given the opportunity to learn leadership skills. They then put them to practice by leading and teaching Days for Girls workshops for their peers. This training is an important tool in preventing teen pregnancy and providing critical education that empowers girls to understand they can pursue any dream they wish!
$5 of each kit goes to providing this training and hosting the distribution events.
