Contact: Samuel Pellerin
The Sun Camp Volunteer Vacation Foundation focuses on the poor children in a vacation center in the Dominican Republic. Their strategy is to attract tourists who want to combine a vacation with helping these children gain the education and experience essential to climbing out of poverty.
The volunteer project goals are to help the people become healthier, to become more self sufficient and aware of solutions to their difficulties. By motivating and working with them, we will set goals to achieve together that we are all proud of and benefits everyone.
