With 2x the campaigns, we can turn "Back 2 School" into:


Ready 4 School


Students at the Escuela Hogar in the Dominican Republic and Kenscoff in Haiti will be headed back to class SOON! Let’s outfit them with the supplies and uniforms they will need to be successful at school! Click here to get children "ready 4 school."



School Uniforms for Haiti

Material for uniforms will be locally sourced. Uniforms are sewn by Haitians in Haiti. Your donation supports the broader community as well as the students who are our future.


Pencil Cases for School

Pencil cases are stuffed with pencils, pens, sharpeners, rulers, and some candy (because that’s integral). They also include notes, in English and Creole or Spanish, signed from you, to the students you will encourage and support. 







Take a Look at Our New Sponsorship Programs




These professionals work with the added stress of gunfire, kidnappings and failed government and infrastructure. The wild valuation of the local currency means they cannot rely on the purchasing power of their wages. Diesel fuel is required to be trucked through gang-controlled road checks to feed the electrical generators of the hospital. Water purification is required to avoid the spread of diseases. Some nights the staff will choose to sleep in the hospital rather than risk being kidnapped on the way home or on their return to work. Learn more about the program here.


Adopt a nurse now





Please consider supporting FOTOCAN’s Special Project for Education by adopting  a classroom with a $35, $50, $100 or other monthly donation. Your donations will directly impact the quality of education being provided to students living at NPH- Dominican Republic, as well as students living with their biological families in the surrounding bateys. Your classroom full of eager learners will receive gifts of school supplies, educational programs, multilingual books, and field trips, directly from you! Learn more about the program here.

Spring 2022 - Emerging from a Pandemic
May 10, 2022 | by: Joy King

Well, it's been over two years now since we had to shut down our projects here. Now we see the light. Here's what's been happening!

* sponsorship has been steady and we are SO fortunate to have our donors continue their support

* Zoom board meetings are "a thing" with our people

* our homes faired well with getting through the pandemic but as you can appreciate, no...
