  • When I first met Isabel in 2014, her school had colapsed and she educated the 80 children in open air. I will never forget that first meeting. It was a brutal awakening on the great difficulties that exists in this warm and beautiful country, a turning point both for me personally and for this charity. In many ways Isabel tought me courage. After many sleepless nights, we rebuilt the school. Today a local volunteer organisation is responsible for it. Isabel still runs her school.

  • Det är fantastiskt att följa de starka kvinnor som driver de skolor @togetherforbetter stödjer. Grundaren av på Camino de Esperanza, Johanny, brukade bo i ett plåtskjul med sin man. Idag har de köpt en liten tomt, byggt detta hus, och adopterat två flickor som också går i skolan. 👊🏻

  • My life used to be along the streets of Manhattan. But one vacation on this beach would change everything. While I had Pina Coladas, hundreds of thousands of people died on the other side of the island. That became the start of @togetherforbetter 💚

  • Vi är så stolta och tacksamma över våra supporters. I år har våra insatser nått över 500 barn, i tre skolor och fattiga områden av sydöstra Dominikanska Republiken 👊🏻. Bilden är tagen utanför Camino de Esperanza i våras med företagssupporter @officerecycling .

  • This year our struggle for girls has given result. We noticed how families with many children often let the girl stay at home early age, and so we started sponsring these girls education. In camino de Esperanza we are now 50/50 and in FUCPE more girls than boys are helped to education 💪🏻 .

  • Hurra för barnkonventionen 🌹
Idag för 29 år sedan antogs FN:s konvention om barnets rättigheter, som bland annat säger att alla barn har lika värde och rätt att utvecklas, kärnan i den här lilla gräsrotens arbete @togetherforbetter

  • All around the world kids are forced to grow up too early. Crowded classrooms and no where to play creates a harch environment for both kids and teachers. We decided to try change that. Today everyday some 350 children play at the @togetherforbetter funded school playgrounds and we are getting reports of happier more content children 💪🏻
