Low cost education is important for low income families in the Dominican Republic. Running schools that provide low-cost education is a difficult task since school premises and their upkeep all need financial and time investment. GPA will be helping the Colegio de Unidad a school in Santiago, turning an empty lot into a playground. This work consists of breaking down a wall, leveling and cleaning out the lot and creating a mural on the wall. Furthermore, several educational classes are planned with the school kids, in which they can playfully exchange and connect with English native speakers.
