Dominican Republic

Providing access to education for a brighter future

A very popular tourist destination, with white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Yet, many families here live in utter poverty. Education is vital to enable children here to lift themselves out of the poverty trap and we’ll be working to provide more facilities than enable children here to go to school.

 

Please note that the trip dates may vary a day either way due to flight availability.

The Projects

Mozovi is a small community in the North of the Dominican Republic with a population of around 800 people. There is a small school of just 2 classrooms, taking students from grade 1-8 in mixed grade classes. Although the government has the funds to pay more teachers – there is no available funding for communities such as Mozovi to build more classrooms, resulting in big class numbers and many children not attending.

In 2019 we are partnering with Go MAD (Make A Difference) to build 2 classrooms for Mozovi school – join us for the exciting opportunity to work with a community to change the lives of their young people.

 

Rest and Relaxation

As well as enjoying the beautiful palm-lined beaches – a visit to Rudy’s has something for everyone. From a walk through the beautiful garden filled with tropical fruits, to taking a lazy river boat ride; you’ll then end your visit with an amazing lunch prepared with ingredients from Rudy’s ecology garden.
