Education is one of the most important resources for a child, and so many young people from the Dominican Republic are deprived of this basic necessity. As a result, many of them are unable to find gainful employment as they grow older, and the vicious cycle of poverty continues. Giving back has always been a top priority for Dr. Shehla Ebrahim, and she regularly donates her time, money, and professional experience to charitable causes that seek to make the world a better place. Determined to assist, she has established a fundraiser with Opportunity International to support efforts to send disadvantaged children from the Dominican Republic to private school, where they can finally receive the high-quality education they deserve.
Unfortunately, the public school system in the country is woefully inadequate, with underpaid, undertrained, and underrepresented teachers, as well as few educational materials. However, these hopeful, eager children can receive an invaluable education for just $20 a month with your help. Our fundraiser continues until December 19th, so donate now to immediately improve the lives of these underprivileged children.
Any amount is appreciated, and your donation can help to pull these young people out of poverty and enrich their lives. For more information about the fundraiser, Operation International, or Dr. Ebrahim’s charitable enterprises, please contact us today.
