Immersion Trip to NPH Dominican Republic
February 16 – 23, 2019
Join us for a one-week immersion trip to our NPH home in the Dominican Republic. Experience firsthand how NPH USA transforms the lives of children! You will meet the amazing children, staff, and volunteers of NPH and learn about their daily lives. Whether you are new to NPH, or a longtime supporter, visiting our homes is the best way to see what we do in action.
We will have the unique opportunity to stay at the NPH home with the children, in a newly constructed visitor’s house. This will allow us to immerse ourselves in NPH life with the children. While the children are in school, you will help out around the home (helping with daily chores around the property, working in the gardens and farm, caring for the babies, working in the kitchen, viewing the school, etc.). Then, relax or hang out with the pequeños in the afternoons. We will coordinate activities with the different age groups throughout the week. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet with the leadership of the NPH home, tour all of the home’s facilities, and hear “talks” from some of the children.
Note: An NPH USA chaperone will lead and oversee all travelers throughout the duration of the week. All chaperones are background checked, and are experienced volunteers.
