Batey Relief Alliance

Addressing socioeconomic needs of families and children in the Dominican Republic

The Batey Relief Alliance is a humanitarian aid organization that provides relief to families and children living in the bateys. The bateys are rural slums in the Dominican Republic that house many Haitian workers and their families living in poverty.

UNFCU Foundation funds will help provide technical assistance, agricultural inputs and small loans to empower 125 vulnerable women. The women take part in a 12-month program to successfully develop, finance and implement a market-oriented agricultural strategy.
