Plan Dominican Republic

Plan has been working in the Dominican Republic since 1987, helping poor children to access their rights to education, health, protection and sustainable livelihoods.

Our work focuses on the South West of the country, helping children and their families in 148 communities to empower themselves to lead their own development.

Currently, we are focusing on early childhood care and development as only 35 out of 100 children receive some kind of initial education and it’s an area that receives less attention from the government.

Where we work in the Dominican Republic

By working directly with over 30,000 sponsored children, our programmes benefit at least 120,000 people in the South West.

Plan’s core areas of activity include:  

  • supporting child development
  • encouraging child participation in decisions that affect their lives
  • improving quality education.
