The Dominican Republic, famous for
the seductive merengue, lively carnivals and coral reefs,
is a popular destination for volunteers. However, with one
fifth of the Dominican Republic living below the poverty line,
it's a country desperately in need of volunteers.
In rural regions of the country, many suffer malnutrition
and live in poor accommodation without running water. We have
volunteer opportunities which involve house building, laying
foundations, building walls and digging wells. The work may
not sound too glamorous, but you will feel immense satisfaction
from providing urgently needed assistance.
