Children in the DR are entitled to attend school at no cost. However, they are required to supply a full uniform; shirts, skirts/slacks, shoes, socks, underwear and all school supplies. This association is being formed so that local residents and the many caring visitors to the DR may donate any assistance they wish to offer to an official, non-profit organization.
