2018 – Acción Callejera

By |2021-02-10T00:10:47-05:007 June 2018|

Project Description

Haitian migrants and Haitian Dominicans are among the most vulnerable populations in the Dominican Republic. To address this challenge, Acción Callejera – Fundación Educativa (Acción Callejera) provides supplemental academic classes and skills training for children and adolescents from poor neighborhoods in Santiago, Dominican Republic, most at risk of dropping out of school, or who may not be attending school through community-based salas de tarea (academic support classes), including Haitian-born or Haitian Dominican street children and adolescents. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to enhance peace and security in the Dominican Republic. Acción Callejera’s activities assist communities’ efforts to propel their own development and advocate for their rights.
