Cultura Viva Foundation is a non-profit organization established under the laws of the Dominican Republic since May 3, 2019.
Our mission is to promote education, health and culture, especially in children, delivering many services and events that enhance the cultural and educational improvement of the community, regardless of race, religion and beliefs, particularly in the municipality of Sosúa.
The DR has no shortage of circumstances that need urgent attention and dedication. Here are a few points to consider. A large part of the population live below the poverty standards established by the UNO (United Nations Organization), with a huge deficiency in health and education services. Over 2 Million Dominicans live in poverty. The Dominican Republic ranks 90 out of 149 in the quality of education according to the latest reports from the World Bank, UNESCO and Gallup. Over 40% of Dominican children drop out of school before graduation With regard to health, the Dominican Republic is ranked 82 out of 140 in terms of infrastructure, physical and mental health, and preventive medicine. Over 50% of Dominicans do not have access to proper health care. The founding of Cultura Viva arises from the need to correctly channel aid aimed at the repair of these conditions via cultural, educational, and medical improvements. Beyond the statistics, there is a country and a culture that is worth helping simply because of the people, their generosity, their kindness and their love for life. These are the qualities that make the DR a unique place in the world. A literal tropical paradise, but what makes it truly beautiful is its people. A people that we believe deserve a fair chance at the best life they can live.

Cultura Viva is focused on expanding our programs to offer more support to the Dominican population. Together with our partner Alegre Global we can better reach the populations of the DR as a whole and offer them the support they need.
Also, we are focused on making large strides toward our larger projects, such as the construction of a Cultural Center and top of the line medical facility. Initial work has begun on both of these projects.
Cultura Viva, as well as Alegre Global, does not offer funds to individuals. Instead, we support a wide variety of Dominican organizations and programs which provide help in many different ways to the people of the Dominican Republic.
