Offer developing worlds sustainable and secure solutions while educating and empowering the people.
Founded in 2018, The 4North Project is a 501(c)(3) that solves humanitarian issues around the globe with a focus on travel, volunteering, and unique experiences. We establish relationships with local communities in developing worlds, raise funds, and develop projects that improve their way of life while still respecting their culture and environment.
Our long-term goal is to educate and empower as many developing communities as we can with on-site volunteering and fundraising. We also want to continue offering life-changing experiences to volunteers around the world with help in our background in production, design, and visual storytelling to improve the awareness of our efforts.
4North’s approach is simple.
We Connect, we Solve, and we Document.
We have had the opportunity to provide solutions for people in countries such as the Dominican Republic, Haiti, Uganda, and Gautemala. In order for these assignments and on-site projects to occur, proper scouting and communication between the 4North team and local communities in the targeted region takes place to ensure the type of assistance that is needed. Once a location has been safely scouted, volunteer opportunities will be posted on our travel page and social channels.
Being a small and impactful non-profit has many benefits, such as pure transparency. Our goal has always remained the same for our supporters… continue to show their efforts and funding in action.
An impact-driven experience
We take pride in being experience providers for all of our volunteers. From the moment you land, our staff will take you to the places that are off the grid, teach you about a different way of life and connect you with our social impact programs to help local communities.
Our small but impactful programs/projects have connected thousands of people globally. Programs may include in classroom educational camps, personal protection courses, parenting empowerment, and team sports to name a few. We also have a wide range of hands on projects throughout the years. This has included, home/business renovations, usable water access, immediate food deliverables, eye exams, medical clinics and much more.
We’ve been fortunate enough to provide an outlet for our volunteers to talk about their experiences working with our local communities and friends in the Dominican Republic. Whether it’s teaching classrooms, personal protection, or dance empowerment, unforgettable experiences have been provided for everyone involved.
