Transforming Communities through Relationship

What We Do

  • Education – We currently support 35 students at university, technical school, and secondary levels from the communities of Batey Libertad and Franco Bidó. To date, 39 students have graduated from high school, four from technical school, and five from college–an accomplishment that would have been impossible without the collaboration of EAB. Many other students eagerly await partnerships. Other community members take advantage of our adult literacy program.
  • Housing – EAB has constructed over 79 new homes or made major repairs/additions
  •  Environment and Agriculture – Two community parks and hundreds of new trees now stand in Batey Libertad, providing shade, community meeting space, and recreational areas.
  •   Racial Reconciliation – By facilitating dialogue and community exchanges between youth and adults of US, Dominican, and Haitian descent, EAB helps to heal wounds inflicted by centuries of exploitation and enmity.
