2015 Spring Business Leaders to the DR April 11 – April 18
December 19th, 2014
Those who traveled to the Dominican Republic with us last year can attest that we had a wonderful time working on a library, constructing a smokeless stove, and organizing a worm farm in a nursery in the sweet community of Derrumbadero. We worked hard, laughed a lot, learned a lot, got to know families who live in this rural community close to the Haitian border,ate fabulous local food prepared by Dona Flores, and for one priceless week experienced a different way of life.
Well, the library is close to being done, but still needs our help to finish it up, additional smokeless stoves have been requested, and the nursery is in need of some green thumbs. All this is saying – we’re going back!
The trip is planned for the week of April 11th to 18th. If you are interested in joining us, please contact the Bridges office for more details.
