Domino Foundation Dominican Republic (DFDR) is founded on March 29, 2021 in the Netherlands.
During the past years Elbia Tours (former Elvis Tours) helped many other charity projects, like the food basket project with the Rotary Club and several school projects. The projects Elbia Tours is doing and the supply donations Elbia Tours receive, is growing. We decided to formalize these activities in an official Foundation.
The goal from the Foundation is to promote development aid, animal welfare and nature& the environment in the DR .
The financials to do this we will get from donations, handmade products to sell as a souvenir and collaborations with other foundations. All profit will be used for projects accepted by the foundation. The board will not receive any reward for the work they are doing for the foundation.
Toiletries are very expensive in Dominican Republic. Soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes are always very welcome, just like other toiletries and band-aid (See the wish-list below). If you have some space in your suitcase, you would make people in Dominican Republic very happy with it. But you can also leave behind your used shampoo, shower gel etc. when you go back home.
The public school is free in Dominican Republic. However the kids need to have the school uniform, the sport clothes and sneakers and the school supplies. We collect school supplies year round to provide it to kids in a project before the school year starts.
For USD 100 all necessary clothes, backpack and school supplies can be provided for 1 child.
You can financially adopt a child and pay for the yearly school package.
These are just some examples.
