Founder Breadfruit House Dominica Foundation


In Dominica, a small island nation in the Caribbean, young children have many things to worry about. Not only do they suffer trauma from natural disasters, such as Category 5 Hurricane Maria, which devastated the island in September 2017, but many of them live in poverty as well. Those circumstances create challenges such as hunger and neglect and an environment where child abuse and domestic violence are all too common.

Exploring their creativity will help them face adversities throughout their lives, whether it be another natural disaster or a difficult situation at school or at home. The ability to express themselves creatively provides them with tools to help build up their emotional resilience and allows them to become empowered adults.

100% of all the money donated will go to The Breadfruit House
