Riding on a bus that drives past Dominican houses is not nearly the same as having the chance to see and stay in such a home. It offers a unique way to share in Dominican culture.

Going on the trip has helped make me more conscious of how the way in which I travel affects the communities I visit. The concept of microfinance is something I’ve been exposed to in my university courses, but to have the opportunity to see how that impacts a family is something I never would have experienced without Onwards.
