The Language & Literacy Resource Center, 1978-1995

Historical Note: The Language and Literacy Resource Center was established in the Dominican Republic in 1978 as a National and International Adult Education Program. The mission was to provide educational, technical and related employment information to the adult population of the Dominican Republic, Costa Rica, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panamá in the areas of technology, rural, and general employment. Ahuva Haimson, a native of the Dominican Republic, who was the Project Consultant for the Center, acquired the collection in 1995 and donated it to the CUNY Dominican Studies Institute Archives.

Scope and Content Note: The collection consists of publications, newspaper clippings, and audiocassette tapes produced by Ms. Ahuva Haimson during activities related to adult education in the Dominican Republic as well as other Central American countries. The Collection also includes Agenda de la Mujer Rural, published by Asistencia Obrera para Mujeres Trabajadoras Rurales en America Central y la República Dominicana, an interesting and very informative publication about women in the rural labor force.
