Save the date! And join us for a wonderful celebration for an even more wonderful cause – the “Family Weekend for Life” for the Fundación MIR! This great celebration for all the family will this year take place on Saturday the 10th of August 2013 – and we hope to see you there!
“Education, the gift that keeps on giving”, is the motto of the Fundación MIR charity which runs 3 schools in La Romana with more than 1,000 students – and so when you attend the Fundación MIR’s Family Weekend for Life this summer (August 10th) your donation will contribute to the future success of these promising and talented children.
“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.”
— Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, President of the Fundación MIR

Wasn’t it wonderful? Blessed with the most beautiful sunny weather and the clearest starry night, the Fundación MIR Family Weekend for Life, which raises funds to support the everyday running of the Fundación MIR’s 3 schools in La Romana – was simply splendid. And with a BIG increase in participation over last year – it was without a doubt, a resounding success!
The Fundación MIR is a non-profit organization which works to provide education to the children of the greater La Romana area, who are most in need. They run 3 schools; the MIR Esperanza (boys vocational school), the Escuela Tecnica Vocacional Fundación MIR (girls vocational school) and the Primaria MIR (infants school).
