2nd Chance, International began its work in the Dominican Republic back in 2006 with a small school in Sosua Abajo, where approximately 35 children were cramped into a space no bigger than a double car garage. The school lacked basic supplies like textbooks and blackboards, and did not have adequate space to accommodate these students. The school in Sousa Abajo was one of four schools, all struggling to survive. Resources were not available to sponsor them all, so 2nd Chance, International decided to focus its work on a school in Munoz, Dominican Republic, called The New Horizon School. Since 2nd Chance, International’s involvement, the school has expanded to accommodate 80 students.
