It is worth noting that the rapid growth of tourism in Punta Cana has collaterally introduced a variety of endemic urbanization problems as workers migrate to the vicinity for employment. Veron emerged as an urban center and only transitioned from a “municipal tourism district,”.Infrastructure has not kept up with population growth resulting in lack of many facilities as well as educational system which is why we have taken an interest in helping our neighbors on the behalf of Grupo Puntacana and all institutions within it.
The Puntacana International School devised a plan to help student creativity by collecting over 600 in a two week period, with 244 from just one class of 13 students in 7th grade. This class travelled to the two schools to present the books along with Alina Ciuclan, a teacher from PCIS, Ms. Jossette Cuello, the senior school Coordinator from PCIS, and the Director of PCIS, Mr. Saul Jenkins. They were also accompanied by Ebba Lovenskiold and Ms. Candy Gomez, Director of Public Relations for Grupo Puntacana.
The students spent time with each other and both of the schools Directors expressed thanks for the donations and help in supporting schools that need help in obtaining resources such as books. We’d like to thank everyone who helped in this wonderful project and look forward to many more.
