Schools in Azua don't provide books, uniforms and supplies for students. These items are expensive but necessary to have access to a proper education.
A critical part of Casa Ana's mission is for orphans to be educated and make educational progress in their own communities. Your donation will provide a school package for a year for an orphan in Dominican Republic. Supplies are not given all at once, but distributed as the need arises and children grow out of shoes, etc. The package is expected to include: 1 uniform 2 pair of shoes for the year 1 package of underwear 1 back pack 2 black & white composition notebooks school books throughout the year 1 box of crayons 2 erasers 4 glue sticks 3 different colored highlighters 1 pack of water-based markers 1 pencil box 2 pencil sharpeners 10 pencils 6 pocket folders 1 inch/cm ruler 1 pair of scissors 1 roll of scotch tape 1 hand sanitizer (small)
