Narciso lives with his father and his mother. At home, duties include running errands. His father is sometimes employed as a farmer and his mother maintains the home. There are 4 children in the family.

Narciso is not presently attending school. Running and playing group games are his favorite activities. He also attends church activities and Bible class regularly.

Please remember Narciso in your prayers. Your love and support will help him to receive the assistance he needs to grow and develop.
Narciso lives in the mountainous community of Los Montacitos, home to approximately 6,000 residents. Typical houses are constructed of dirt floors, wood walls and corrugated iron roofs. The most commonly spoken language is Spanish.

The regional diet consists of beans, bread and rice. Common health problems in this area include flu, diarrhea, and parasites. Most adults in Los Montacitos are unemployed but some work on plantations and earn the equivalent of $26 per month. This community needs electricity, employment opportunities, schools and vocational training centers.

Your sponsorship allows the staff of Los Montancitos Student Center to provide Narciso with Bible teaching, medical and dental checkups, nutrition education, toothpaste and tooth brushes, field trips, birthday celebrations, uniforms, vocational training, computer courses and typing classes. The center staff will also provide special celebrations for the parents or guardians of Narciso.
The Dominican Republic occupies the eastern two-thirds of the island of Hispaniola, which it shares with Haiti. It has a tropical climate, but moist, year-round trade winds keep temperatures between 72 and 83 degrees.

Nearly three out of four Dominicans have both black and Caucasian ancestry. Spanish is the official language, and 95 percent of Dominicans are Catholic. Nearly 90 percent of Dominicans live in rural areas where unemployment is high and malnutrition is widespread. A family's diet consists mainly of rice, beans and chicken. Though agriculture was long the economic mainstay, in recent years growth in tourism and free-trade zones has made the service sector the country's largest employer. Compassion works with children in nearly every region of the country.

The Taíno people were the country's original inhabitants. In 1492, they welcomed Christopher Columbus in his first voyage to the island, but subsequent colonizers were brutal, reducing the Taíno population from about 1 million to about 500 in 50 years. Hispaniola became the center of Spanish rule in the West Indies. The indigenous people were wiped out and slaves were brought from Africa to populate the island. The descendants of those slaves form most of the population today. For three centuries, Spain governed Hispaniola, followed by France. In 1804, the western part of the island won independence as the Republic of Haiti. In 1844, the eastern two-thirds of the island revolted and formed the Dominican Republic. In 2004, Leonel Antonio Fernández Reyna was elected to his second term as president.
