Find out about The Mariposa Foundation, what they do, their story and how you can help.
Cabarete really is an incredible place packed with inspiring, like-minded and interesting people. Some of these lovely humans don’t just enjoy the beaches, weather, watersports and adventures. They also help those less fortunate to enjoy too by giving back to the community and The Mariposa Foundation is a group of selfless people who do just that.
Founded in 2009 by a group of volunteers who shared the same mission, to educate and empower girls to create sustainable solutions to end generational poverty. With this missing in mind, the Mariposa Foundation has since then built a beautiful facility here in Cabarete where Haitian and Dominican girls can enjoy sports, receive academic tutoring, learn job and life skills, access libraries and computers and health and wellness care. The facility is a positive, energetic and safe place for these girls with glass artwork on the walls, quotes and portraits of significant historical women. There is pride, power and inspiration everywhere you look!
