The Dominican Republic: a land of beautiful white sand beaches, palm trees, and warm sparkling water; a destination enjoyed by many tourists each year. The Dominican Republic is all of that, but it is also a land where people suffer from poverty, poor living conditions, and inadequate housing.
Depending in the size of the team, it could be divided into small groups and spread out at multiple construction sites. Volunteers complete improvements, finish work, repairs and expansions. International volunteers may work in all stages of construction, from digging the foundation to painting the houses.
We invite you to join our Global Village team in partnering with Dominican families in need to help build safe, affordable, decent homes. Working together, we can create positive change. Thank you for becoming a part of the Global Village experience!
