Despite being a popular tourist destination, the majority of the population of the Dominican Republic suffers from poverty. There have been several initiatives to provide better access to education in the past years, but still, only a few locals have access to basic education and the illiteracy rate is alarmingly high. Volunteer projects in several parts of the peninsula aim to provide easy and free-of-charge access to education to the locals.
