Nearly 540 children attend Colegio Isaias Evangelico Emmanuel, a private Christian school in Hoya del Caimito, Santiago that prepares the future generation of leaders.
40% of Dominicans live in poverty, and only 25% of Dominican children complete high school, mostly due to economic strain on their families. Even public school is expensive for Dominican families with the cost of uniforms and supplies. Many children trade low-income jobs for school after the 8th grade, if not before.
Through the GO Kids Sponsorship Program, we are able to offer these families an otherwise unattainable private Christian school education for students pre-K through 8th grade.This education offers opportunities unavailable in public schools including: classroom sizes limited to 25 students, caring teachers, regular access and use of our library, a computer lab, an over-all superior learning environment and regular exposure to knowing Jesus as Lord.
The need is great, and GO is committed to meeting the educational needs of the children God has entrusted to our care. We can’t do this alone, and we need your partnership to sponsors these children. A sponsor has the ability to do a partial sponsorship at $30 per month or a full sponsorship at $60 per month. A sponsor is able to log into our system and have access to updates on the school, their child’s classroom, and updates on the child they sponsor.
