Entrena specializes in project management that addresses sustainable social development, poverty alleviation, and community participation. We are skilled at facilitating and coordinating resources and activities between donors (international, governmental, and private sector) and implementing institutions, such as NGOs and community based organizations (CBOs).
Our most significant activity was the technical management of the USAID sponsored PVO/NGO Co-Financing and Hurricane Georges Reconstruction project in the Dominican Republic from 1991 to 2001. Both projects fostered institutional strengthening and improved delivery of services to the poorest sectors of the Dominican population. The financial impact of the project covered over US 30 million in direct donations plus another US 10 million in counterpart contributions.
Resources were disbursed to over 70 sub-project grant agreements involving 50 implementing NGOs for a beneficiary population in excess of 750,000 in over 300 communities. This project is considered a model for the alleviation of poverty and sustainable social development.
