About AES Dominicana Foundation
The AES Dominicana Foundation is a non-profit organization that works for the protection of the Earth and the well-being of its inhabitants, especially in favor of the families living in communities located where the AES Dominican Group's power generation assets are operating. We focus on addressing environmental, educational and health needs as priority areas in the communities neighboring our plants and responding to national needs in emergency situations and natural disasters.
The Foundation does not limit itself to meeting the material needs of its neighbors, but it extends its work to feed the community's soul through art and culture by supporting the orange economy that drives the Dominican Republic to foster the development of talent. In this sense, we are a main sponsor of the Trampolín Children's Museum in the beautiful Colonial City of Santo Domingo since 2008; we support young Dominican filmmakers by financing their first film productions; we also support emerging visual artists by publishing projects to promote Dominican art, and musically talented young men and women from our neighborhoods, for whom we cover scholarships to study at the world famous Berklee College of Music in Boston, United States, in alliance with the National Conservatory of Music.
Bringing joy to the world is of great importance for the AES Dominicana Foundation, as an echo of one of the most deeply rooted human values in our corporate DNA. At AES Dominicana Group we work with joy and enjoy what we do.

This program aims at creating awareness about the importance of recycling plastic and paper by encouraging the 3Rs culture (Reducing, Reusing and Recycling) and turning these into agents of change.
