How are we helping?

We’ve Identified a Problem

The Dominican Republic is known for it’s breathtaking beaches and booming tourist industry. A truly luxurious escape awaits visitors. Yet life for the residents of this beautiful Caribbean nation is a far cry from resort life.

  • More than 32 percent of the country lives on less than $3 USD per day. Many survive on an income as small as $10 per day.
  • Half of the country does not have access to clean water or sanitary toilets.
  • 75 percent of the population depends on the public health care system, making it inaccessible to those outside urban areas.
  • 70 percent of children will not finish primary school.

Jeremiah 22:16

With Your Help We’ve Started an Education Center

What began as two meager classrooms in the back of a vacant church has evolved into the 2nd Mile Education Center. The school serves pre-school through grade twelve, with as many as 800 students enrolled every year.

Through our child sponsorship program, you can help provide education and empowerment to a child in need.

With Your Support We’ve Opened the House of Hope

The House of Hope was born out of necessity. It provides a comfortable, loving home, and a sense of security to young girls who have been abused and/or abandoned. More than a home, the House of Hope is a family – a place where girls can begin to thrive.

Through our family sponsorship program, you can help provide hope and healing to displaced girls.

With Your Help we’ve opened vida plena

Vida Plena is the part of 2nd Mile Missions focused on providing trade training, business and finance education and dignified employment to the marginalized women of El Hoyo and Monte Verde.

This is another way that we are able to embrace the families of the kids impacted at the education center.
