Tucked away in the mountains outside of Jarabacoba, it isn’t easy to find this small village. The only way in is a four wheel drive vehicle – or the Dominican favorite, by motorcycle. Twists and turns up this mountain road take you past homes built precariously onto the side of the mountain. ACES is working with two local residents who have made it their life’s work to address the problems this community faces. Poverty, alcoholism, and sex trafficking have been ongoing issues they seek to remedy.
