The “Inclusive Education: opportunity for change in the practice of school-community relations” project, carried out by the InteRed Foundation in collaboration with Fundación MAPFRE, works to promote inclusive education in the Dominican Republic.
It is a grouping of individual activities which promotes inclusion as a process for transforming circumstances, persons and learning. It offers a 4-stage training process which includes selection and registration, material review, qualification, and the training of future promotors.
The initiative is directed at the teaching staff and the managers of the Resource Center for Diversity (CAD) and the Center for Comprehensive Attention to Diversity (CAID), both in the public education system. Criteria will be determined and the school district selected in coordination with the Department of Education of the Dominican Republic (MINERD).
The InteRed NGO began in 1992, driven by the Teresiana Institution as a network for interchange and solidarity among social groups, villages and cultures from the north and the south. Since its beginning, it has modeled itself on the long tradition of the Teresiana Institution in socio-educational perspectives.
