Upcoming Trips

Journey to Baní, Dominican Republic

The city of Bani is the capital of the Peravia province; its residents also know it as the home of poets. The province’s population is relatively small with ~170,000 people. 

We’ll be traveling to outside communities providing food assistance, education, and empowerment programs. Learn more on how you can help us on this upcoming journey!
