Escuela Fe y Alegria

About Escuela Fe y Alegria

This ministry began in 1995 under the umbrella of the Latin American effort of the Jesuits known as Fe y Alegria. Currently, the project includes a Montessori program for children ages five to seven, adult education classes, and a medical clinic that serves families from the batey, an area of the Dominican Republic that lacks the most basic of necessities such as running water and electricity. Please note that fluency in Spanish is required to volunteer at Fe y Alegria.
