Immerse yourself in the Dominican culture when you join us on a Live Different Build in the Dominican Republic!
You will have the opportunity to visit local communities, make life long memories, and help provide a brighter future for a family in need! Not to mention, you will also get to enjoy our favourite Caribbean cuisine prepared by the amazing Maria, espeically for you, at her community restaurant, Mama Maria's! During your time in the Dominican Republic will you work with other volunteers, ground staff, translators, contractors, and alongside the family, helping build a new home, while changing lives forever.
Thanks to the help of Live Different Build volunteers such as yourself, by partnering with community members, we have built houses, schools, and community centres and have also completed many medical clinics in remote communities along the north coast of the country.
Our goal is to provide people, just like you, with the opportunity to experience the power of making a difference for someone else, while being changed and impacted in the process!
My life changed after participating in a service-learning trip at the age of 17. I learned about the importance of giving back and living a lifestyle focused around human connections. I worked in the corporate banking industry for 7 years, but in 2015, I did a complete career change to pursue my passion for international development. I am proud to work as Live Different's Manager of Operations here in the Dominican Republic. We encourage you to join us in our journey of creating meaningful change as we continue to build lasting relationships and sustainable communities in the Dominican Republic. This is an experience that will not leave you the same! Ojalá que nos veamos pronto!
~ Melanie Barahona, Manager of Operations, Dominican Republic
