Rapid Recuperation

ACE's Rapid Recuperation initiative provides training for young people whose expressive culture is undocumented and endangered to record and archive their traditions for local use, in regional libraries and at the Library of Congress.  

In 2017, ACE began a pilot program, supporting Dominic Raimondo, one of the Lost Boys of the South Sudan, in the return to his home country to help preserve the traditions of his Didinga Tribe.  ACE provided training, equipment and travel to make it possible for Dominic to record and catalog his cultural heritage to be deposited with the Didinga people.
