World Story Exchange

World Story Exchange partners with schools and educational organizations to offer documentary storytelling workshops to youth ages 7-23. Our workshops invite students to explore their lives, their dreams, their concerns, while finding their creative voice using a variety of media tools and artistic approaches. We teach photography, filmmaking, writing, painting and drawing - all from a documentary perspective with ethnographic ethics.

Yspaniola

Yspaniola’s short-term goal is to create vertical access to quality education in Batey Libertad, from pre-K classes to university scholarships. Our long-term goal is to replicate these programs in other bateyes and marginalized communities across the Dominican Republic. We aim to create a network of communities with access to quality education and social and economic capital, so that individuals can advocate and act on their own behalf to petition their government for change. At the same time, we will continue to work, through service-learning trips for students from the United States and Mexico and volunteer programs for Dominicans, to strengthen the Dominican and international coalition that supports civil and human rights for these communities.

Yunus Social Business

Yunus Social Business (YSB) helps entrepreneurs in emerging economies build social businesses that solve the kind of human problems normally tackled by charities, foundations or aid agencies. Through long-term loans and mentoring we help social businesses scale and achieve financial self-sustainability, enabling them to re-invest 100% of their profits back into tackling the challenges they were set up to solve.
