About this Mission Project

Save Our Students (SOS) is a new program in the Dominican Republic aimed at assisting students who want to receive a public education.  Too often, scholarship money only helps students in private schools.  SOS will help elementary, secondary and college students.  

Alicia is a 14 year old girl from a poor batey in San Jose.  Thanks to an American Baptist Church in Ohio that supports SOS, Alicia now has the opportunity for an education.  Her father was sick and the cost of medicine meant they could not afford to send her to school.  

The SOS program provides a school uniform, a back pack, shoes and school supplies.  $100 will send one student to school for a year!  

SOS’s goal is to help will help 50 elementary and secondary kids get an education, along with another 25 college students.
