For $400US, the Abundant Life Charity can provide the families of the Batay with meals for 2-3 days. For some, these are the only meals they are able to eat in a week. Our goal is to help these families do more than just survive.
Abundant Life Charity
Selected as 1 in 5 Schools by Minister of Education
The Abundant Life Charity school was paid a visit by the Minister of Education. Just months after opening their doors, they are able to participate as one in only 5 schools to carry out the Community Satisfaction Survey for the school year.
Although many private schools chose to open the school in September 2020, Pastor Gabriel Dalusma, who runs the school, worked to time the opening with the local Public schools. The additional two months were used to prepare the teachers with training courses and familiarize them with the programs provided from the Secretary of Education as all classes are taught virtually.
They have developed a strong virtual class plan to support the school year. Zoom was used for live teaching and guidance, WhatsApp for sending and receiving homework and tasks, and Classroom for delivering online exams.
We continue to need support as a result of COVID. With the unexpected restrictions, we will need to support summer school for the children who were not accommodated with the new restrictions.

The charity is dedicated to providing for the growing needs of education, spiritual direction, and the relief of poverty for the children of the Dominican Republic.
In 2005, a vacation planned for the Dominican Republic turned into a spiritual journey that has continued throughout the years to help the children in a small community in Higuey.
