The Mariposa DR Foundation is a US 501c3 and Dominican non-profit organization whose mission is to educate and empower girls to end generational poverty.
The Mariposa DR Foundation was founded in 2009 by a group of caring volunteers and children who were inspired by past works, and the urgent need for community-based solutions to end poverty. Our mission is inspired by the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. These goals include eradicating extreme poverty and hunger, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equality and empowering women, reducing the child mortality rate, improving maternal health, combating HIV/AIDS, malaria, and other diseases, ensuring environmental sustainability, and developing a global partnership for development. Achieving these goals is dependent upon the education and empowerment of women and young girls.
The Mariposa Center for Girls is located right here in Cabarete, serving more than 100 girls and their families in our community. For more information about how to support foundation please contact us!
