One ot the best places to volunteer, and where you will have lots of fun and get rewarding Spanish learning experience is The Dominican Republic.
  •  Do actual labor and get zero boredoom.
  •  Make a positive change for the world’s poor. I am passionate about creating a more equal world and about changing Canada’s society for the better.
  •  Gain insight into rural poverty and the complexities involved in development.
Volunteering is the practice of people working on behalf of others without being motivated by financial or material gain. Volunteering generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good or improve human quality of life. People also volunteer to gain skills without requiring an employer’s financial investment.
There are three major benefits of volunteering:
Economic benefits: activities undertaken by volunteers that would otherwise have to be funded by the state or by private capital, so volunteering adds to the overall economic output of a country and reduces the burden on government spending.
Social Benefits: volunteering helps to build more cohesive communities, fostering greater trust between citizens and developing norms of solidarity and reciprocity that are essential to stable communities.
Individual Career Benefits: graduates can meet people and gain work experience through volunteering, and, it helps school students for scholarships knowing well that the judges are impressed when a resume lists volunteer work.
Your donations, membership and involvement in M & M Organization  effors through  hispaniola Possibilites are and will enable  us to expand our operations, helping people in some of the Dominican Republic’s most impoverished communities, its sustainable tourism industry and helping children’s educational needs. Yes you can improve their lives.
