DOMINICAN REPUBLIC: vocational village, designed by many JI members
The Santiago Agriculture and Water Company will bring sustainable solutions that address the lack of clean water, food sustainability short-comings, the limited access to primary health care and education, and the absence of technical and vocational job training for the poor and marginalized in the “El Cibao” region of the Dominican Republic. The facility relies on a social business model using aquaponic-farming methodology, sustainable agricultural biology and household-scale ceramic filtration technology to fund a community vocational/technical training and health care center.
