AAFCS Global Perspectives Community: FCS/Home Economics Programs in Puerto Rico Need our Help

Hurricanes IRMA and MARIE in September 2017 devastated many parts of the Caribbean and much of Puerto Rico where there are few resources to devote to recovery of home economics programs.  DAP has already helped several islands in the Caribbean in cooperation with CAHE, where colleagues and FCS/home economics programs on affected islands received assistance from DAP.  It is clear that our continued efforts will benefit our colleagues in Puerto Rico where the suffering from the hurricane’s destruction continues to be dire and profound!

The AAFCS Global Perspectives Community presented at the Annual Conference in Atlanta this past June to explain the Disaster Assistance Program.  Attached is the summation of their presentation.
