Haiti – Dominican Republic
Explore both the Dominican Republic and Haiti on this unique trip that challenges preconceptions, crosses borders, and helps local economies.
As an alternative to the often un-impactful ‘volun-tourism,’ explore current organizations and models of community development at work in the DR and Haiti. This is an impactful week of community exposure, organization site visits, evaluation, learning opportunities, and discussion about “What is community development?” and “What does success look like?”
Come see local community development organizations in action working in micro-enterprise development, sustainable agriculture, poverty alleviation, housing, and more. Paired with these opportunities are, of course, community based tourism to see some of the best hidden gems the DR and Haiti have to offer. Reside in bungalos, home-stays, and on the beach. Activities include organization site visits, horseback, coffee, and organic farm tours, waterfall hikes, and a trip that will truly stimulate your mind and body.
