These boys aren’t discouraged by their small, concrete walled playground, but with smiles covering their faces and laughter echoing upwards, they are making the most of what they have. This creative and tenacious spirit is indicative of Dominicans’ attitude towards life. Instead of focusing on what they don’t have, they joyfully enjoy what they do have – health, friendships and fun at recess.
