FEM Dominicana is a non-profit association incorporated by and for women. We support and empower young Dominican women with limited resources to reach their potential. For the last two years we have been empowering vulnerable women in Villa Altagracia with our successful pilot empowerment program by providing access to family planning, capacity building and mentoring.

But with global pandemic and national restrictions due to COVID-19 our communities and women are specially more vulnerable than ever. The Dominican Republic has one the highest teenage pregnancy rates in the region, which perpetuates the cycle of poverty.  A reality which is most likely to worsen during the COVID crisis. 

These women must provide to their families and  we are committed to continue their empowerment track through todays new hurdles. 

FEM Dominicana has liquidated resources from an emergency fund to provide ongoing relief during the pandemic through food packages and our ongoing programs. We want to do our part and we need your help to continue the work!

 

Our programs:

  • Aim to remove the financial barriers to contraception of choice, promote the most effective methods of birth control, and reduce unintended pregnancy. 
  • Provide access to capacity building and technical education courses that will better the employment opportunities for beneficiaries. 
  • Provide personalized mentorship relationships to beneficiaries with empowered members of FEM.
  • Attend specialized needs through continued support during the harsh times these women face due to the pandemic.
