Here’s how we are paying it forward today.
Franco Blueprint Inc. is proud to have passion projects that are active in the US and the Dominican Republic. Our connection to the Caribbean Island runs deep. Oneida’s parents are from the Caribbean nation and she spent her middle school years there.
Fundación Generaciones Sanas is Dominican Republic-based foundation that helps underdeveloped communities. Since its inception we have realized the the following projects:
In 2015 in collaboration with El Pan del Saber a fundraising event successfully equipped Oneida’s former middle school with a full library.
In 2017 we did our second collaborative project with El Pan del Saber, helping an amazing teacher, Iluminada Ruiz, provide school supplies for her pre-school which is located in the backyard of her humble home.
In 2018 we are working to build Iluminda Ruiz a proper school where she can continue to spread her joy and passion of molding our future generations. Visit FUNGESA's website and Facebook page for more information.
At home here in the US, Rick served as an elected member of the Englewood, N.J. Board of Education and was an integral member of the finance committee for that organization.
We are currently conducting a Teen Money Management beta program in our local community. Teaching young adults to have awareness around managing their paychecks and deductions, as well as how to budget and save for the future.
