I think you might find you need a GPL (general purpose language) for
Android development rather than a DSL...

As a language, Scheme is roughly small enough that a Scheme compiler
can retargetted to other hosts (e.g. generate JVM bytecode rather than
native assembler or portable C). It would be possible to do this for
Glasgow Haskell, but pragmatically there probably isn't much will - it
would be a substantial engineering effort.
