Visiting a school in Bavaro/Higuey area of Dominican Republic

HI All, I’v been traveling to the Dominican Republic for several years and now want to do some volunteer work. I am a school teacher in the USA and would like to work with a school in the Dominican, perhaps to adopt a classroom to support and create a relationship with. Does anyone know of any education volunteer opportunities or a contact person in the Bavaro area. I will be going again in July and hope to make some progress with this idea.

Beyond the Beach Children’s Foundation should be able to assist you. Try contacting any of the directors.
See http://www.beyondthebeach.ca/officials.html
I would suggest Olive Thompson.
Note that the Contact and Donate link on their site seems to be malfunctioning. I will be informing them.

Hello Bob is there anyone on our forum from the Beyond the beach foundation that you know who could help @Jilliebean264 here in this thread? Maybe we should invite them as other members might have same question if they wish to help people in Dominican Republic.

I suggested Olive Thompson (in the previous post).
She is the president and founding director of the foundation.
She is (or was) a member of the forum and posted as dot. I’m not sure if she has re-registered or not.
I will ask her about re-registering and posting in this thread.

Margaret B… in the area you are inquiring about, we work through Rotary International - they do several projects with schools there.

You could e-mail Paul Tierney at tierneypaul@hotmail.com or greengo69@hotmail; Alberto Smith at asmith@puntacana.com or, Benjiman Hulefeld at bhulefeld@puntacana.com.

Our website is beyondthebeach.ca - I’m not sure why BobfromCanada had a problem with the link he posted as I just used it and it worked for me.

Good luck and have a wonderful trip. Thank you so much for thinking of the children of the Dominican Republic!

Olive Thompson, President
Beyond the Beach Children’s Foundation.
