This year Las Margaritas Foundation is beginning a new initiative to provide financial support to the girls in Madre Vieja who have worked as leaders at the summer camp so that they can attend college. Although tuition in the DR is free the students must pay for their own transportation into Santo Domingo and must purchase their own textbooks. These seemingly small costs can nonetheless prevent girls from being able to attend college. A tax deductible donation of $250 can pay for these costs for one student for an entire year of college.
