Do you want to do a volunteering year? Are you technically gifted? Give people a home. Work with an NGO that construct houses for vulnerable families and empowers communities towards entrepreneurship
In 1997 a group of youths began working towards the common dream of overcoming the poverty in which millions of people lived. They believed that the best way they could achieve their vision was to build emergency houses and homes for families who were living in unacceptable conditions.
This initiative became a huge success and can today be found in several countries across the continent. It began in Chile, but was soon followed by El Salvador and Peru. Today, after 18 years, it is operating in 19 countries of Latin America: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Dominican Republic, Uruguay and Venezuela.
The office of the organization is located in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. There are a lot of different projects you can join, so your task will vary depending on the project they are working on and in what area of the office you will be working.
You will take part in an arrival orientation, a mid stay orientation and an end of stay camp. In these camps, important subjects will be discussed, such as the participant’s relationship and development with the host family, the project, and the community.
