At Ruben's Shoes Society, we believe that all children deserve access to education. We believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty every child deserves the right to create a better opportunity for themselves, their families, and their communities.

  
Our mission is to deliver access to education to the millions of children around the world living without it.

 

Our vision is to empower the next generation of leaders and put an end to extreme poverty once and for all! 

 

Since 2014 we have been watching our students grow and develop so much through the propriety programs we have initiated at our partner elementary school, Centro Educativo Toribio in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic. Over the course of just one year we have recorded a 20% improvement in Literacy and have seen significant growth in learning capacity along with confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills.

Our students are growing up fast and are starting to age out of our Elementary School losing access to Education and a safe learning place at the most vulnerable years of their lives.

For them, we are building a Secondary School! Our goal is to open the Secondary School for the next school year beginning August 2020.

We have secured ownership of the land and construction is well under-way!

We would love to have you involved in this legacy project, in any capacity which you can give.

Here is how you can make a big impact by purchasing one of these items:

Buy a door $200 x 40

Buy a fan $100 x 20

Buy a window $65 x 40

Paint a room $50 x 20

Total = $13,600

*All donations will receive a tax receipt*

 

Please join us is creating long-lasting permanent change and being a part of something bigger than yourself!
