Our Mission

We have been empowering education initiatives for Haitian refugee youth in the Dominican Republic since 2006. We call these schools “grassroots schools” as they are founded by locals who are burdened by the country’s failure to educate their youth. It has been our greatest desire to give these locals the tools they need to take matters into their own hands. We hope to share what we have learned so that others can collaborate on such initiatives as we believe that the lack of opportunity of education is a global plague that can be ended.

The mission of Grassroots Schools Global Affiliates is to provide organizational materials and a pathway to connect educational initiatives around the world with sponsors who believe in education and wish to support such initiatives. The materials and pathway we provide ensure optimum transparency and communication between sponsors, school faculty, and parents of students. If you have been looking for a way to empower a third world community, you have come to the right place.
