THE MARIPOSA CENTER FOR GIRLS
Creating a model for the world.
A first-rate facility that inspires achievement: In the fall of 2012, The Mariposa DR Foundation purchased a large piece of property in the town of Cabarete that was formerly a private school. It had been vacant for two years, was run-down and needed extensive repairs. We transformed the entire area into a beautiful facility where girls come to engage in sports, receive academic tutoring, have access to libraries and computers, receive job and life skills training and health and wellness care. For the girls, having their own space allows them to develop healthy relationships with mentors and other girls in the community, and feel empowered to make a difference in their lives, their communities and the world. Our innovative center attracts visitors from all over the globe. It is a place where volunteers, educators and girl champions can share knowledge on how empowering girls will lift entire families out of generational poverty.
