Giving Back to Our Community in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
We are one amazing community. We are artists, writers, realtors, business owners, and professionals of all types. Punta Cana is, of course, a premium tourist destination, but it is so much more. 
 
Our community support has recently included providing assistance to local community events and support by means of financial donations and/or publicity on our community magazine and social networks. We feel it’s important to improve lives in our local community, that includes helping local entrepreneurs and putting our local expat community on the map. 
 
Here are some of our community efforts:
 
 
Days for Girls Event at Villa Caoba ♦ June 2016
Island Insider and Punta Cana Lifestyles Real Estate is proud of its involvement in the recent Days for Girls event in aid of  girls at Fundacion Lirio del Valle, a local non-profit organization helping the children of Villa Caoba in La Romana.

Mrs. Alicia Zubiri of Days for Girls made a presentation about the work that the organization does and selected girls for the fifty Days for Girls kits to be distributed.

Days for Girls is committed to the aim of ensuring that by 2022 girls and women across the world have access to quality sustainable hygiene and health education. The non-profit organization provides access to quality sustainable feminine hygiene, vital knowledge about health, and opportunities to generate income.

The event was sponsored by Island Insider Magazine, Punta Cana Lifestyles Real Estate and by Jose Vaquer, Director at Presidential Suites by Lifestyle. Here are the photos of the event:

Local Punta Cana Charities
There are many charitable groups in the area- it can be difficult to choose who to donate to. Some givers choose to support local charities or ones which they can relate to in some way.
 
Punta Cana Lifestyles MAGAZINE
Website: www.PuntaCanaLifestyles.com
We understand that our community has unique needs and causes. We provide support for local community activity in the form of donations and publicity support. This is our direct contribution to the community, an in-house publication serving Bavaro, Punta Cana and the surrounding areas. 
 
At Punta Cana Lifestyle Real Estate, we're not just committed to Real Estate. We recognize our responsibility to the area, to better the lives of our customers and the communities we serve and to inspire others to do the same.
 

 

If you’re struggling to choose between a few charities, you may want to split your donation between organizations. We also suggest you research the charities you're thinking of giving to- that way, you can see how your donation will likely be spent, and how much support they have overall.

 
Donations for local community initiatives
Our formal charity donations include multiple contributions to several area organizations. We choose to donate to a small, select range of charities as we like to know we are contributing to worthy causes.
 
Bavaro’s very own animal sanctuary; we love what these guys are doing to help stray and abused animals in the area. With spaying and neutering campaigns, adoption drives, and plans to build a shelter for unwanted animals; Rescatame is ran by animal lovers who use their own free time to help our local furry friends. You can donate cash or time, provide animal supplies, become a member, or best of all adopt a loving animal, the choice is yours. Visit their website for more information.
 
Villa Caoba www.VillaCaoba.com
Helping local disadvantaged children, this charity really gets in touch with what’s going on at ground level. It’s easy to forget how difficult living in the real Dominican Republic can be when plush hotels and luxury condos surround us. With 120 sponsored children and their families, this fantastic cause provides education, life skills and supplies to those less fortunate. We love getting involved in their events and you can too, they’d love to hear from you!
 
Kaelum Jiu Jitsu Facebook: kaelum.kalista
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the most effective martial art in the world. Kaelum offers classes free of charge to all women Monday to Friday, as he believes that this valuable skill should be available to everyone, no matter what. Donations are greatly appreciated and if you decide to join, a contribution is welcome. We love that someone is willing to give up their valuable time to provide defense skills the ladies in the area! For more information contact 809-474-7175.
 
Bavaro Festival 
Bringing the whole area together, no matter what walk of life to celebrate the rich and varied culture of the Dominican Republic, we love this incredible organization. What better way to shout about what makes Bavaro and Punta Cana great than a fantastic fiesta? With music, art, food and a whole host of other activities, and run entirely by volunteers. (Festival has been suspended)
