Hermandad Inc. is a private, not-for-profit development agency founded in the U.S. in 1975. Its philosophy holds that all human beings have dignity and have a right to full integral development and a decent standard of living.
For the last decade and a half, Hermandad has concentrated its efforts in the rural south-west sector of Dominican Republic. Hermandad works at the grassroots level, directly engaging the farming villages in the decision making and labor required to reach community goals. Hermandad’s field staff are leaders who have come out of the villages where Hermandad has worked. These are the people who best understand the mentality and needs of their communities.
