Phase 1: Get to Summer Camp Estimated Total Cost: $32,000 Estimated Time Frame: Needs to be completed by June 1 st, 2013 Install Doors, window & bars on all rooms Install light fixtures & fans in all rooms Purchase inverter Install toilets & sinks Furnish kitchen & cafeteria with appliances, tables & chairs Paint remaining rooms Repair fence Estimated Monthly Costs: $1,600 Day/night watchman Electricity (including air conditioned office and pool pump) Pool maintenance Internet Phone Lines Water *We anticipate that monthly costs will be an additional $1,000 more per month than we are now paying in our current location for exponentially more space that will enable us to cut down on other current costs, mostly food & transportation
Phase 2: Building the Model - Multipurpose space & accommodations for student groups, teachers, staff & volunteers Estimated Cost: $270,000 Estimated time frame: Begin August, 2014, desired completion March, 2015 First Floor: Multipurpose room This will allow us to do many activities in a covered space: fundraising events, performances, guest speakers, student group activities, rainy day activities, exercise & dance classes, movie & media showings, parent meetings, additional dining space, additional storage and shower/locker rooms. Second Floor: Student group & volunteer housing This is how we envision creating a sustainable center. By housing volunteers & student groups on our property we will double the profit margin costs on our volunteer and student group income Third Floor: Long-term & international staff & special visitors By providing private accommodations directly on our property we will be able to cut our costs for long-term volunteer housing and international staff travelling to the country for extended stays. We will attract a more diverse and qualified volunteer pool by providing free accommodations as a benefit to joining us as a volunteer. Ultimately this will allow us to offer more competitive salaries to employees and contractors in the Dominican Republic
Phase 2: Tennis Court Estimated Cost: $30,000 Full cement tennis court with night lighting Why a Tennis Court? Mariposa has had a tennis program for two years and it continues to be one of the most popular activities. Tennis is a life sport that will boost the self-esteem of our girls as this is normally a sport reserved for wealthy children. Building a tennis court is the exact out of the box thinking that we want to be known for. Lit tennis courts at night will also provide additional activity space for student groups while staying on the property as well as other events.
