Join us for a one-week immersion trip to our NPH home in the Dominican Republic to experience firsthand how NPH transforms the lives of children!

During your trip you will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home with the children, which will allow you to immerse yourself in NPH life. You will help out with chores around the home and also spend time with the pequeños who live there. Activities will be coordinated with children of different age groups throughout the week. You will have the opportunity to meet with leadership and volunteers at the NPH home, tour the home’s facilities, and hear from the children about living at NPH. You will also have the chance to engage with the local community, visit the beach with the pequeños, and tour historic Santo Domingo.

About NPH Dominican Republic

Opened in 2003, NPH Dominican Republic is located 40 miles east of Santo Domingo. Casa Santa Ana was constructed from 2004-2005 and has small group homes, each with its own kitchen and garden. The site is currently home to more than 200 children.

Note: An NPH USA chaperone will lead and oversee all travelers throughout the duration of the trip. All chaperones have been screened and are experienced volunteers.

COVID-19 Protocols

In order to protect the unvaccinated and vulnerable populations in our care, visitors are required to follow all protocols set forth by the NPH home. These include mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations and may also include (but are not limited to) a period of social distancing, mask-wearing, and a negative COVID-19 test.

If an adult visitor tests positive for COVID-19 during their visit and is unable to return home as scheduled, an NPH USA staff member will remain at the home with them to help coordinate their return. If a minor visitor tests positive for COVID-19 during their visit and is unable to return home as scheduled, an NPH USA staff member AND the minor’s guardian or chaperone must stay with the minor at the home until the minor can travel.
