The Circle of 12 is a public 501c3 charity, incorporated July 2008, dedicated to serving the children and young adults with special mental and physical needs who live in the Bateyes-the sugarcane work camps-of the Dominican Republic. These children are the poorest of the poor.
They live without good access to healthcare, clean water, post-primary education, adequate food, and most importantly the proper care for their medical ailments. The Circle of 12 is a group of concerned, charitable people and companies who want to see these children and their families live a better life; live to their fullest potential as human beings.
We raise money through individual donations, grants, and gifts in kind to provide food, basic medical care, and therapies. On a case-by-case basis, we also provide services specific to a child’s needs such as teaching Braille to a blind child, giving speech or occupational therapy to children with Cerebral Palsy and other afflictions, and in rare cases moving families to better housing. The rent for this housing is paid in full or part by The Circle of 12.
