One Who Walks the Path

Caminante, meaning “One Who Walks the Path” is located in Boca Chica, a beach-resort town near the capital city of Santo Domingo. Children in this area are highly stigmatized and harassed because of their involvement in the sex industry as well as drugs. According to Unicef, nearly 24,000 children are part of the sex trade in the Dominican Republic. People of Caminante know the first hand struggles that these children are faced with each and every day. The goal of the people is to give children not yet affected by the prostitution business and those already involved the opportunity for educational and recreational activities. Little education is brought to these communities, especially in areas such as science. Caminante aims to provide various support to these individuals in order to help them find a more suitable path!     -Nicole Marotta
