Agriculture in Dominican Republic

Batey Relief Alliance Agriculture

Donate to help transform lives


Many poor Haitians move to the Dominican Republic seeking employment opportunities, only to end up in crude slum-like settlements called “bateyes.”

The women in these settlements suffer most, having no economic means of sending their children to school or repairing their crumbling homes. Your gift will fund an innovative microenterprise program that will provide these women with everything they need to launch profitable careers in agriculture and animal husbandry. Please help these women escape poverty and gain self-esteem. Help them build a brighter future for their children and rediscover their value in the eyes of Christ!

Financial Accountability

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 4.62%
More than 95 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2021

When you select an aid project, your donation to that project will be used to cover any expenditures for the project incurred through June 30, 2023, the close of our ministry's fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
