Abrimos el camino de los niños y niñas de Villas Agrícolas
The Fundacion Abriendo Camino is a non-profit organization working to improve the lives of children in the marginalized neighborhood of Villas Agricolas, in northern Santo Domingo.
In 2002, the lives of three women came together to follow the same goal ; they shared a concern to find ways to help disadvantaged children. Their vision evolved as they collaborated with the community work of the French missionaries from the “ Sacred Heart of Jesus” congregation in Villas Agricolas. After organizing educational and recreational activities for two years in the local parish, they faced such a growing demand that they decided to undertake the challenge of broadening the scope of activities by building a center which now houses Fundacion Abriendo Camino.
Organizing educational and recreational programs for the overall development of children and youth from 6 years of age
