A "Batey" is a sugar cane workers village. They are located in close proximity to the sugar cane fields. Where WWR works, a large portion of the batey community are Haitian immigrant workers living in extremely poor conditions. Batey 7 was our first water project and we now work in several bateys around the Barahona area
