Dominican Republic

Service for Peace – New this Year

Service For Peace works in rural areas of the Dominican Republic. We focus our efforts in the mountains of Villa Altagracia county within the province of San Cristobal, just 45 minutes northwest of Santo Domingo.

Service For Peace embraces the idea of community driven development. This approach places an emphasis on principles of local empowerment and enhanced local capacity. This unique model of development involves ongoing local engagement combined with periodic visits by teams of international volunteers at key moments. The impact of this model has been significant, both in terms of the changes to the physical infrastructure of communities, and in terms of the active engagement of local residents in shaping and implementing their own development plans and priorities.

Focus of this experience will be on water quality and access to clean water.
