“We want to provide unique ways for our guests to give, learn, grow in spirit, and help build a sense of community that reaches out to the wider world. Our maiden voyage is behind us, but there is still so much all of us can accomplish together. It is an exciting time for us all, and we look forward to bringing people with a passion for travel and a desire to make a difference in this world to the Dominican Republic so we may keep up the significant impact we have already accomplished.”
