Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Pascal's Pantry

For those who live in Bateys, communities of mainly undocumented Haitians in the Dominican Republic, not only is food scarce (no grocery chains or businesses), it is difficult for residents to engage in self-sustaining ways to feed their families. The government does not provide aid. None. As a result, many children are severely malnourished and underdeveloped.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    Pascal’s Pantry sought and received donations earmarked for sustainable energy. When it had renovated the new kitchen, the refrigerator required a source of energy and many updates to make it safe and secure. They decided to install three solar panels to provide energy for the refrigerator and secured them to the top of the kitchen. This system has worked perfectly for about two years, so the people of the community expressed interest in expanding access to solar panels for homes. Pascal’s Pantry offered more panels to provide lights for surrounding homes if the people of the Batey would assume the costs. A typical family buys a candle a day to light their homes at 10 pesos per candle. With a light bulb, those 300 pesos (a little less than $6) a month can now go into paying off a solar sys
