St. Augustine Church
Young Adults Group Mission
December 14-21, 2019
At the end of this project, each home is connected with a faucet, and clean, running water. A faucet allows families to spend more time at school or earning an income, achieve improved health, and gain more opportunities for future local progress.
BUILD AN AQUEDUCT SYSTEM FROM START TO FINISH & CONNECT AN ENTIRE COMMUNITY WITH ACCESS TO CLEAN WATER.
STAY: Sleep in the community inside a local house, community center, or school. Cots provided.
BOND: You'll make lifelong connections with your new campo family.
PRAY: Pray, meditate, and celebrate mass throughout the trip with the group and community. A time to put our faith in action.
WORK: Learn how to use tools to dig trenches, glue pipe, and work on the construction of a water holding tank. See the project through from start to finish.
CONNECT: Spend an evening with a local family learning about their life and culture.
EAT: Typical dishes prepared by local cooks from the community. Light breakfast, full lunch and dinner provided every day in the community. (Transportation days not included).
Prepare to be tired, muddy, and empowered.
Trip Cost: $1,250 + $500 Community Contribution Fee
(Payment Plans Available)
COMMUNITY CONTRIBUTION FEE + TRIP COST: The group commits to fundraising the entire cost of the water project they will be constructing in a rural community of the Dominican Republic. This amount will be fundraised through our online platform. BLUE Missions will provide fundraising support for all volunteers to make sure the group is able to meet their goal. In the event that you fundraise more than the project cost, you will not be able to transfer it towards your trip cost.
