One of the priorities is the repair of roofs and walls. General improvement of the habitat. Repair, renovation, home improvements. Reconstruction of some of the structures. Construction of furniture, tablets. Storage spaces, etc. . Purchase of plates to repair roofs, regrigerator, stove beds etc. . Making toilets pits skeptical, paint the houses, take a water pipe. Build or improve electrical system. Raise public awareness of fire hayards and improve safety.
Improve the life of adults in general (including Haitian refugees in Munoz). Give them tools to be more autonomous and aware of solutions to their difficulties. Prepare individuals to be able to do paid work and maintain jobs. Make them aware of hygiene and good nutrition in order to improve their health. Educate them about non-violence, birth control and AIDS prevention. Teach people in the community specific knowledge and skills that can be applied toward getting paid work. Education in languages ( English, French and German), teaching skills, art or techniques; (plumbing, electricity, painting, jewelry, hairdressing etc.), Conferences, seminars on hygiene, behavior that can substitute violence, education on various types of contraception, information about venereal diseases and AIDS, condom care and use and much more!
Assist existing small businesses in the village or create a micro enterprise. Choose a business in Munoz and facilitate it’s evolution and autonomy. We prefer micro enterprises run by mothers to feed their children and send them to school. Example of one: selling empenadas for breakfast in the morning to schoolkids and hungry workers in the Batey .
Choose a person in the village to build her own micro-enterprise. For example teach a technique, such as massage or jewelry-making so that she can pursue her business afterwards. If possible make a single small investment early to help the business grow. Amount which is recommended is $100. Help people with purchasing, managing, setting sales prices (compared to the purchase price). Motivate them to manage the funds to buy more stock! Show them how to raise profits and make a budget for the family. Establish a promotion or marketing system. Encourage them to be honest in their trade and make the right choice of products to sell for a better Income. Ensure continuous follow-ups by volunteers to the chosen company for a better chance at success..
Cultivate the land to put food on the table and make it sustainable. Find land to cultivate and adapt a local food crop; give a small salary to the people who will be involved full time, to obtain the seeds and plants necessary for production and to buy the necessary tools and equipment. Train groups of local people who want to participate in the agricultural project. Invite specialists for training; follow up for maintenance. Environmental awareness activities. Show how to grow in baskets. Teach techniques for making compost.
Couture and Tricot (knitting, crochet and sewing). Make people autonomous with products made by knitting, crochet or sewing. Teach knitting and sewing techniques to all interested girls and ladies. Some women already have their own sewing machines and for others, purchase equipment, sewing machines and needles. Assist in selling their products; establish contacts with organisations or businesses that buy their garments.
The goal is to use the free time of children who are on the streets, to prevent delinquency and to give them the motivation to go to school and then pursue studies. Awareness of ethics, morals, non-violence, respect, hygiene, and food. Education, arts, sports, animation , games or any other activities that can engage children in a constructive way. Develop many abilities, establish discipline and better social and moral functioning. Organize presentations, contests, tournaments, shows. Pick up the rubbish. Teach hygiene and healthy eating habits using interactive and entertaining techniques.

Travelers normaly describe the tour of the 27 waterfalls at Damajagua as ‘the best thing I did in the DR.’ It’s hard to disagree. Guides lead you up, swimming and climbing through the waterfalls. To get down you jump – as much as 9m – into the sparkling pools below.
The Region also boasts a number of different caves. You can set out on the ultimate adventure, dive off cliffs within caves, swim in the crystal clear waters beneath the caverns, or just bask in the majesty of it all.
Why not drive yourself through the sand, trees, and local vegetation in a buggy/ATV? This adventure will allow you to enjoy the most beautiful scenery through the woods and sugar cane fields!
