Centro de Esperanza (Hope Center)

The Problem

There is a growing child hunger crisis in the Dominican Republic - and we desperately need your help!

We were heartbroken to learn that each day 500-600 children in the rural community of San Pablo suffer from hunger, malnutrition and dehydration. Their families do not have enough money to purchase food and the water is not safe to drink.

Since October 2012, Project Mañana has been providing daily nutritious meals and clean drinking water to 255 children - but, there are hundreds more children who need your help!

We Need More Space To Help More Children

Currently, we are at maximum capacity at our existing nutrition center and urgently need to expand our facility to meet the needs of the community; so more children can receive a nutritious meal and clean drinking water.

The Solution

Project Mañana is currently raising money to build a NEW two-story, state-of-the-art nutrition center and multi-purpose room in San Pablo, Dominican Republic.

The first floor will offer an industrial kitchen, walk-in pantry, and hygienic food preparation area. The dining area will have space to seat 300+ children at a time (that's a 275% increase in capacity).

The second floor will offer a large multi-purpose room that will be used for church services, weddings, community meetings, emergency relief, and more. In addition, it will have offices (for medical and psychological treatment), and a personal apartment.
