Proyecto Educativo Caminante

Caminante literally means, "One Who Walks the Path”, Projecto Educativo Caminante is located in Boca Chica, a beach-resort town, located close to the airport and the capital city of Santo Domingo. Projecto Educativo Caminante provides a safe space where hundreds of youth and their families will receive counseling and participate in recreational and formation programs. They are directed by Denisse Pichardo.

Their mission is to promote participation, encourage empowerment and personal growth for the construction and recovery of healthy environments (family, school, peers, and community) with shared values such as solidarity, honesty, respect and peace. Their vision is to walk along with children, adolescents and young people as they grow and help to support a formation that allows for the development of their potential.  The hope is that they will create a new foundation of future leaders that will make space for the rights of all.  

To accomplish their mission and vision, Projecto Educativo Caminante promotes fun recreational activities as a tool to teach them alternatives for more unhealthy recreational activities. They encourage education and help to provide vocational training. They defend the rights of children, adolescents and their families, as well as create and maintain alliances that are dedicated to the same ideals.
