Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology
Founded in 1997 the Daniel Langlois Foundation for Art, Science, and Technology is a private, charitable organisation with an international scope.
The Foundation aims to further human knowledge by supporting artistic, scientific and technological research. Exploring and revealing the interdependency between ourselves and our omnipresent technological environment is at the core of the Foundation’s endeavor.
The Foundation seeks to bring art and science closer together within a technological context on two levels: first, by nurturing a critical awareness of technology’s impact on ourselves and on our natural and cultural environments and second, by promoting scientific research and the exploration of aesthetics reflecting the environments that we shape. The Foundation also seeks to promote the emergence of knowledge integrating local practices that contribute to the growth and well-being of people in their communities and natural environments.

Sustainable Earth Dominica
The Renewable Energy Pioneer in Dominica
Sustainable Earth is a pioneer in renewable energy in the Caribbean and in Dominica since 2007.
Ten years later and in the aftermath of 2017’s destructive tropical storms and hurricanes, the importance of self-sustainable renewable energy is undeniable. With so many communities, homes and businesses without access to the grid for weeks or months on end, having a solar, wind or hydro system is the solution.
Sustainable Earth Dominica has partnered with reputable international manufacturers to bring quality alternative energy products to the Caribbean. Based in Dominica, we offer products, installation and maintenance services. We offer a range of kits specially designed and tested for tropical conditions, from the most compact one able to power a simple phone/laptop/ tablet and a few bulbs to packages tailored to power entire homes or businesses.

Humane Society of Dominica
Founded in 2001, the Humane Society of Dominica is a not for profit, non-governmental organization whose mission is to help create a more humane society by promoting and teaching humane education, encouraging and supporting spaying and neutering for the long term control of roaming pet populations and creating and developing engaged youth and community groups in order to celebrate the bond between people, animals and their sustainable environments.
Hands Across the Sea
Hands Across the Sea is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization that raises the literacy levels of Eastern Caribbean children by sending brand new books and rejuvenating libraries in schools.
Since 2007, Hands has delivered over 141,000 new and near-new books and 220 boxes of teaching resources to 291 schools, libraries, reading programs, and youth centers in the Eastern Caribbean.
In Dominica, they are partnering with REZDM to completely re-create the Soufriere Primary School library with up to date and relevant books.
Clemson University - Engage Dominica
Engage Dominica is a student-led organization working to improve the lives of those in the island nation of Dominica. ENGAGE students come from many colleges on Clemson’s campus, with majors ranging from Civil and Biomedical Engineering to Economics, Education, and Health Sciences. By partnering with academic faculty and industry professionals in the technical aspects of our projects, students are networking and learning real-world skills that can be directly translated to their future careers.
Engage Dominica is working closely with REZDM focusing on a number of efforts in the village of Soufrière.
World Central Kitchen
World Central Kitchen (WCK) began in 2010 when founder José Andrés and his wife envisioned an organization that would use food to empower communities and strengthen economies.
In 2020, the world changed profoundly. WCK activated in communities around the United States and the world to meet the daily needs of families in need of a warm plate of food – and supported thousands of local restaurants in the process. They also responded to natural and manmade disasters in countries on five continents. WCK envisions a world where there is always a hot meal, an encouraging word, and a helping hand in hard times.
In 2021, Resilient Dominica partnered with World Central Kitchen to complete the installation of a full commercial kitchen in the Soufriere Primary School. This project provides regular meals to meet the nutritional needs of the school’s students and allows for culinary classes for the community. It also has the capacity to cook large quantities of food in disaster situations.
This partnership is a perfect combination of the on the ground skills of Resilient Dominica and the expertise of World Central Kitchen and a wonderful example of how two separate, non-profit organizations can work together, leading to improved community resilience.
