The Fundación MIR charity founded by Lian Fanjul de Azqueta in 1990, is dedicated to improving the lives of young people in the La Romana area of the Dominican Republic. And whilst many generous souls from the Casa de Campo community happily donate to the MIR and attend the foundation’s many annual charity events – do you really understand what it is the MIR does?
Here Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, founder and president of the Fundación MIR, explains in her words the important and life changing mission of the cause.
Fundacion MIR is proud to share with you the dedicated and inspired work beingaccomplished through its educational programs for the youth of the La Romana area.
Fundacion MIR endeavors to mold the total person: academically; spiritually; and socially. To accomplish this task, Fundacion MIR operates three schools that cater to the needs of over 1,000 students. Whether the student attends our Elementary School, Middle School, High School or is enrolled in one of our Vocational Programs, their well-being and formation are our primary focus.
Education has become our main goal because we hope to create individuals that will become inspired leaders in their families, communities and country. Making an investment in the youth of our nation benefits everyone. It is only because of your generosity that so many are able to participate in this educational experience.
Thank you for your willingness to walk with us on this journey of faith, hope and love. Supporting the Fundacion MIR Schools will transform the lives of many and will continue to inspire change in future generations. Please visit our website or contact us for opportunities to join us in our mission.
