Partners has been working in the Dominican Republic since 1970, when the Dominican Republic-Michigan Partners was founded. Today, our Farmer-to-Farmer program is helping fight climate change in the country by raising awareness and helping farmers, associations and the local community adapt to climate change. Since our founding, we’ve emerged as a leader in the sport-for-development field in the DR, using A Ganar and the power of sport to equip young people with marketable career and classroom training. Our baseball exchange program from 2007 to 2008 empowered local communities and community organizations in the DR with the tools to provide sustainable sports programs for youth.
