The unfortunate truth is the youth in Dominican don't just struggle with poverty but also face educational issues which include overcrowded classrooms, lack of resources, poor-quality facilities and outdated curriculums to say the least. This setting is a challenge and most youth can't afford to stick around. We also have noticed the need for a library because literacy is not promoted as a result the youth lack knowledge and information. Inside the classrooms there is lack of positive attitude among teachers and teachers pay has decreased causing the teachers to lack interest. With limited support or none at all the youth & community struggle. Our goal is to keep the youth away from prostitution and from committing crimes through providing mentoring and education opportunities. Starting with one student, one community at a time.
NIE has been serving the Caribbean Nation since 2018. Our mentors serve some of the most at-risk communities in the region. Due to drastic income inequality, 32% of the population lives below the poverty line of $5.50 per day. NIE's mentors provide workshops, classes and trainings that teaches life skills and foster leadership and commitment. Mentees also receive ongoing mentorship and education they will use for life.
What you put out in the Universe will come back to you. Let us be loving with our giving and cherish every experience. Remember the youth are watching.
NIE teaches youth about essential life skills, such as giving back to those in unfortunate communities and teamwork through setting examples worldwide.
NIE's mantra is, "Sowing Seeds by Doing Good Deeds." It's simple when God touched the hand of Adam it was confirmed he had giving him the gift of life. Here when NIE touches you we will give the gift of love.
