Greetings from the Dominican Republic!
What an incredible year 2022 was for Dove! Some highlights include:
We completed construction on our entire building, including renovating classrooms for the new Vocational Training Center!
We launched our Job Readiness Program to prepare our teens to get into the workforce and help them find employment.
We’ve started enrolling children who have been on our waiting list since the beginning of the pandemic.

Enrolling up to 100 new students who are on our waiting list who are excited for this opportunity.
