$3,170 of $10,000 raised

Jump for Change

For most of us, we never need to worry about further education for our children, but in the villages of Ascension and Caraballo in the Domincan Republic, once students complete high school, post-secondary education is beyond their reach and their means.

We are so excited to partner with Carolyne Rodrigues, who has a heart for the people of Ascension/Caraballo, as she has spent many hours in this community. Carolyne intends to “jump” for this great cause! On May 20 she and her husband Steve, along with a group of their friends will be skydiving from the Wasaga Beach, Ontario Skydiving club. We are looking for your support.

Our goal is to raise $10,000 through this initiative. This total amount will enable a university student from the village to attend university in Puerto Plata for 4 years, receiving a university degree.

As you partner with us in reaching our goal, you become part of the dream of a student and an entire village.

Generation of Change

Generation of Change is a program that has been successfully sending students to university for the past four years, enabling young people to have careers and become productive members of society. This program is the vehicle of change for the people of this village, as the students fully understand that through this opportunity, they are not only realizing their own dreams, but their leadership offers inspiration to everyone in the village. The goal of Generation of Change is to “change” the next generation through education.
