Serving students in the Dominican Republic since 2017 by providing educational materials and opportunities.
Many students in the Dominican Republic lack access to the basic school supplies they need to learn and grow as students. Our school supplies focus gets students what they need so that they can focus on the most important thing - learning!
Carlos and Hannah have personal connections to this work. Carlos was born and raised in the Dominican Republic and has found success through education. Hannah started her work in education as a Peace Crops volunteer in the Dominican Republic. Both know first hand the positive impact education has on the lives of students and their families.
Very soon we hope to also offer small scholarships to fund students educational future after graduating High School. These scholarships would pay for technical certification courses and college credit courses.

At our leadership meeting we discussed the progress on our NGO paperwork in the Dominican Republic. We also received confirmation that the projector from our first project was installed in the new school in La Meseta.
It took 6 months and we can finally now announce that we are an official NGO in the Dominican Republic. We had to adjust our name due to our name "Carlos Cares" being taken. We are dedicated to the same work, but now are the Hannah & Carlos Foundation. This will allow us to expand our ability to make a difference here and in the DR.
Our partner school in La Meseta reached out for support to provide students with a Christmas party before break. See the photos below of music, food and fun that our donation to them provided.
