Dorcas International Institute of Rhode Island's mission is to empower individuals and families, especially the underserved, immigrants, and refugees, to become self-sufficient and fully participating members of our diverse community through innovative programs and advocacy that promote education, training, and cultural understanding. Bryant University students will be working with this institution throughout the semester to raise awareness and donations for the institution. Due to recent events in government, DIIRI has lost clients (immigrants and refugees) which will ultimately affect their government funding. Our student team and DIIRI are looking to raise $100,000 by the end of June. All donations will go directly to the institution.
