During our 2022 humanitarian trip to the Dominican Republic, once again we will be surprising kids on the streets, shelters, schools, churches, and Children’s Hospital with school supplies, clothing, toys, sports equipment, and more. In addition, we will be conducting our annual conference for teenagers, teaching them about dealing with issues, such as sexually transmitted diseases and early pregnancy prevention. Our “Raising Awareness for Teen” program aims to help the youth realize the importance of having a life with a purpose and taking care of their health. In this project, each teenage girl receives a bag with health information, free resources in their community, feminine hygiene products, makeup, and more.
It is that time of year again, Esperanza-Hope is going to be participating in the 401Gives on April 1, 2022! Please consider donating to Esperanza-Hope so that we can continue doing work with and for our community! Mark your calendars for April 1st.

Central Library will showcase works of art from the students of the Esperanza-Hope Art Program. The Esperanza-Hope Art Exhibition will be featuring the Masterpieces that were created by children between the ages of 6 and 15, during the Esperanza-Hope free art program. These master pieces are filled with colors, laughs, positivity, and love.
Through these free art programs, Esperanza-Hope is working so closely with our community with passionate volunteers and artists. During our art program we are able to engage the kids in something positive and they have the opportunity to interact with others while displaying their artistic abilities. In addition, the children can openly express themselves through art and work on their talents.
Our mission is to bring hope and embolden a positive vision of the future for the children in our community in Rhode Island, and for children in the poorest communities of the Dominican Republic. Our objective is to encourage a more positive outlook for children by providing the tools necessary for success.
