STEP in the Dominican Republic
Goal: $9,000 per month
About This Mission Project
$1 a day—that’s all it takes to provide an education for a child in the Dominican Republic. But many families cannot afford the required school uniforms, supplies and monthly fees. Without an education, the future is bleak for their children.
Genesis is a brilliant girl who dreams of going to college. Her father’s salary as a pastor would not be enough to keep her in school—but thanks to the Student Tuition Expense Program (STEP), she is able to attend school every day. She is growing intellectually and is a model for her friends at school and in her church.
- $50 buys book bags for two students.
- $100 pays for school uniforms for five students.
- $250 provides lunches and snacks for one classroom for a month.
- $500 provides books and supplies for one classroom for the whole school year.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to send 300 children to schools in San Cristobal, Bani and Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic.
This project is managed by IM missionary Madeline Flores-López. It is anticipated that this project will improve the overall self-esteem, education and future of hundreds of children in the Dominican Republic. An education will help break the cycle of poverty, giving each student the chance at better jobs and improving the overall health and vitality of their communities.

These are some of the students at Colegio Bautista Peravia Bani. They are all the recipients of STEP funds and have received school supplies, school uniforms and snacks. $30 a month goes a long way in the Dominican Republic, providing a child with everything he or she needs to attend school.
