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 that cater to the needs of more than 1,000 children; the MIR Esperanza (boys vocational school), the Escuela Tecnica Vocacional Fundación MIR (girls vocational school) and the Primaria MIR (infants school).
“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 and Founder of the Fundación MIR
The Fundación MIR was founded in 1988 by Lian Fanjul de Azqueta, when Lian’s brother Alfy Fanjul won the “Sugar Golf Tournament” and donated his winnings to his sister, which she used as seed money to found the “Casa de Paz”, which has now grown into the Fundación MIR.
