- WE ARE COMMITTED -
To affecting change in two major areas that impact both an individual's quality of life and that of the community: providing clean water for daily living, and micro enterprise opportunities through community education.
The Dominican Republic
The Dominican Republic has been long known for sugar, coffee and tobacco production, but currently the economy is now dominated by services. The country's current economic progress is exemplified by growth in its telecommunication system, and transportation infrastructure, tourism and free trade zones. Nevertheless, unemployment, government corruption, and inconsistent electric service remain major Dominican problems. The country also has "marked income inequality." Every Day Hope works to build sustainable communities, raise the standard of living for families and bring hope to the people of the DR though safe water, and community education.
