I love Mariposa DR Foundation because, with their help I have been able to participate in many activities. My favorite activity is circus, which I absolutely love! The foundation has inspired me in many ways. The foundation has also taken me to many places that I would have never had a chance to visit without participating. I know that I will go far with their support!

The Mariposa DR Foundation has helped me with a lot of things. For example, I have learned to kiteboard (my favorite sport!), surf and I love Capoeira class. I also get help with Math and English. My sister is part of the Foundation too and my mom works for them in the summer. Mariposa DR Foundation has helped me study in a private school. My life is better with the Mariposa DR Foundation and I am grateful to them.

I am a child of the Mariposa DR Foundation. The foundation has taught me many things: swimming, surfing and tennis. It has also given me the opportunity to get an education at CADIN, a private high school. With the Mariposa DR Foundation my life has changed for the better.

The Mariposa DR Foundation is doing a very good job, because the girls in our community are showing a different attitude and prostitution of girls is diminishing. Mariposa is great since the girls have learned to play and learned different activities in different ways. The goal of the Mariposa DR Foundation is to work with poorest girls and help improve the quality of life and education for every girl in our community. It's awesome and very nice what foundation is doing for the community.
