The Orchid Foundation
WHAT IS THE ORCHID FOUNDATION?
Orchid Foundation, Inc., is a non-profit corporation dedicated to the continued service and maintenance of the Armando Rosenberg Home and School. The orphanage, located in Sabana Perdida, the largest barrio in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, currently houses one hundred and forty children from throughout the Dominican Republic. In addition, there are seven hundred students who walk to school from surrounding areas for education. Two new High School buildings have recently been completed with a daily occupancy of 1200.
Hogar Escuela Armando Rosenberg, which began in the early eighties as a home/school for orphaned, abandoned children, or children from severe poverty, is now a complex on fifteen acres of property. The complex provides a Christian education, a free, fully staffed medical clinic, a pharmacy, lab, and a dental facility. The new church provides moral and psychological guidance. More than a home, Hogar Escuela Armando Rosenberg has become an oasis of hope in a desert of wretched poverty.
