Princess Project

Nurture a young lady’s self-esteem and she will thrive.

In the life of a young Dominican girl, a quinceañera (15th birthday) is one of the most important days (other than her wedding) that she'll experiences in her life. The quinceañera is a "coming-of-age" celebration where the birthday girl adorns herself with an elegant dress, high-heel shoes, and a tiara. In other words, it’s her day to be a princess.

Sadly, for most of the girls living in the communities where Project Mañana serves, a lack of resources means that most of them will never get to enjoy this very special celebration. Not only does this create a lifetime void in their heart, it's highly detrimental to their self-esteem.

The Princess Project is designed to provide impoverished girls with the opportunity to experience a quinceañera. They are invited to "go shopping" at the Princess Project Salon for a beautiful dress, tiara, and all the accessories to make their celebration very special. Then, Project Mañana's team will help plan an amazing celebration with the princess' family and friends.

The Princess Project has helped 24 princesses realize their dream of a quinceañera. (as of May 6, 2021)
