Some of the volunteer English teachers from the International Language program are so honored to be able to raise funds for one of their little students and his family who live in great poverty in the Dominican Republic to have a home.

In only 25 days 4 of the ILP teachers, their family and friends have raised over $12000 to help Rene and Balina and family have a new home in the Dominican Republic. These young teachers fell in love with the students that they teach and want so much to help them have a home.

Rene and Belina and their 6 children live in extreme poverty.  Along with the parents, e 6 children and the grandparents subsist in a small shack.

Since Rene and Balina don't own land, we have been able to purchase a piece of property with a partly finished home. This will be big enough for the 10 people who will be living there to be much more comfortable plus have their little store in the front.

It will cost an additional amount to do all the finishing but in the end, they will have a much bigger home than we usually build (and for a much bigger family).  Please help us raise the additional funds needed to help change this family's life forever!
