The Problem

To help women imported from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic for the sex trade learn to read and write and teach them Office computer skills so they can give themselves and their children a better future.

Our Plan

We want to raise funds to purchase three computers at first along with educational software and begin on a small scale to scope out the effectiveness of the teaching methods and the level of interest from the women. Hopefully we can give women who haven't had many chances in life an opportunity to better their future. Often these women leave Montserrat after a number of years and move on the England. With our program they will be able to immigrate with marketable skills that will help keep them and their children from becoming vulnerable to those who would seek to exploit them.
