Help us Help our Children!

By helping us reach our fundraising goal of $18,000, you will provide 15 children with complete sponsorship for a year at 3 Mariposas Montessori!

Last year, thoughtful donors gave over $13,000 during A Mother’s Wish, allowing 10 students to attend 3 Mariposas Montessori (3MM). Let’s extend this opportunity to 5 more students and their mothers this year!

Why 3 Mariposas Montessori?

The „3“ in 3 Mariposas Montessori represents children, parents and teachers. Together, we create a program that is sustainable, meaningful and responsive to the needs of the community. In fact, if 3MM did not exist, most of our children would not be able to attend school. We provide a child-centered education that addresses each student’s needs and interests in a nurturing environment. And we have a lot of fun doing it!

Why you?

While our 3MM team is dedicated to creating an effective model for early childhood education, our success depends on your support. 70% of our students live in poverty, and your donations are the only way we’re able to offset these disparities. Your A Mother’s Wish donation will be used to sponsor a child and cover the cost of his/her tuition for the 2013/2014 school year.

Sponsorship includes:

  • bilingual Montessori education (indcludes peace education, movement programs, health & hygeine, environmental awareness)
  • wellness checks & emergency medical insurance
  • healthy snacks, purified drinking water & daily vitamins
  • educational materials to use at school & at home
  • field trips
  • Christmas gifts
  • enrollment in our new Summer Program

Why mothers?

The mothers at 3MM have taken the first step. They have enrolled their children in school. Each mother is an active school volunteer, collaborator and believer in her child’s sucess. The role of these mothers is key to a sustainable future for the school, its students and families, and the community as a whole. They deserve to celebrate and be celebrated this Mother’s Day! They deserve to know that their children will be returning to school in September.

♥ When you donate in honor of a special mother in your life, just click „Dedicate my donation to someone“ in the donation form and put her name blank. We’ll personalize our Mother’s Day PDF card and email it to you, so that you can share your gift with her. ♥

Why now?

As families around the world celebrate Mother’s Day this May, please remember that the gift of education is a gift that lasts forever. On May 26th, Mother’s Day in the Dominican Republic, we hope to present 15 of our mothers with the gift of education for their children. Give in honor of your mother, your grandmother, your librarian or your favorite teacher. Honor her achievements and love by helping a mother at 3MM.

Please donate now and share with your friends and family.
