This Mother's Day, you can help us celebrate mothers by giving them the best Mother's Day gift ever. An education for their children.

Mothers believe in us, inspire us and love us. They really are some of the world's most special people.

Despite the struggles of mothers in La Ciénaga to feed, protect and educate their children, they still wish the best for their children, just like mothers everywhere.

The mothers at 3MM have taken the first step toward making their wish come true. They’ve enrolled their children in school. They’ve made a choice to lift their families out of poverty.They deserve to celebrate and be celebrated this Mother's Day! They deserve to know that their children will be returning to school in August. And you can make that happen!

By helping us reach our fundraising goal of $30,000 by May 31st, Mother’s Day in the Dominican Republic, you will give families an opportunity to change their lives forever. Your A Mother's Wish donation will help provide 25 students with a 3MM scholarship for the 2015/2016 school year.

Each scholarship recipient receives:

  • a bilingual Montessori education (includes peace education, movement programs, health & hygiene, environmental awareness)
  • home visits by 3MM staff, volunteers and other education & health professionals
  • wellness checks & medical clinics
  • healthy snacks, lunch, purified drinking water & daily vitamins
  • educational materials to use at school & at home
  • field trips
  • Christmas gifts

A quality early childhood education at 3MM provides children with the foundation they need for a happy, healthy life—the best Mother’s Day gift ever.

♥ Give in honor of a special mother in your life. Honor her love by helping a mother at 3MM. Click "Dedicate this donation" in the donation form. Then write her name, email address and your dedication message in the blank. We'll share the good news with her and send her a personalized Mother's Day e-card. ♥

Please donate now and share with your friends and family.

Thank you!

More about 3 Mariposas Montessori:

The "3" in 3 Mariposas Montessori represents children, parents and teachers. Together, we create a program that is sustainable, meaningful and responsive to the needs of the community. In fact, 70% of our students live in poverty and if 3MM did not exist, they would not be able to attend school. We provide a child-centered education that addresses each student's needs and interests in a nurturing environment. And we have a lot of fun doing it!
