Plan International does excellent work with children and youth in the south west - the DR's poorest region.

Plan Rep?blica Dominicana - Derechos de los Ni?os, Violencia Infantil, Abuso

Health - this is a project I support - improving nutrition for children under 5 by advising parents on good nutrition and child rearing practices, and providing healthy snacks at pre-school centres, they do sexual health education with teenagers, and support youth community radio groups.
Education - they do a lot of work in rural schools to improve educational techniques by working with teachers, parents and children, helping children who are behind catch up with reading and numeracy, preventing child labour.
Economic opportunities - community savings and loan groups, support for small businesses and young entrepreneurs.
