"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world"
 - Nelson Mandela

We are currently providing funding for the operations of Centro Educativo Toribio an elementary school in Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic which has been ranked by the Ministry of Education as the #1 school in the country!

What started as a small school with four classrooms and 24 children, founded by Aris Toribio, has now grown to 2-Storeys with 12 classrooms and over 240 students!

We created an Education Sponsorship program which provides the funds to pay for our students to attend school. For $50cad/month, you can sponsor a child's education.

Your monthly contribution goes directly towards keeping your sponsor child in school. The funds are used to pay for our teachers, our director, along with the overall operations of the school and anything required to support the health and development of your sponsor student. 

Ruben's Shoes Society is a Registered Canadian Charity.
All donations greater than $25 will receive a Tax Receipt.  

Charitable Number: 817268535  RR0001
