Dates and Travel
The dates for this trip are January 9-19, 2018 with the 9th and the 19th being travel days to and from Santo Domingo airport. When booking your flights, please try to plan your arrival times mid to late afternoon on the 9th and your departure times after the noon hour on the 19th.
Scope of Work
The team will be constructing a Church building out of concrete blocks that is approximately 30 feet wide by 36 feet long with a concrete roof. There is a need for masons as well as general laborers. As time permits and skill sets allow there will be other projects for the group to work on. Mostly painting and building window/door frames for the new building as well as previously constructed buildings.
This building will cost approximately $10,000.00 (USD) to complete. We are asking each participant to raise $800.00 (USD) to be used for the materials for construction and $425.00 (USD) for our room and board, ground transportation and an administration fee. This administration fee covers the cost of a t-shirt, background check and international travel liability insurance. This amount of $1,225.00 (USD) is over and above your travel to and from Santo Domingo Airport (SDQ).
There will be more details submitted to you periodically after your registration and as the dates for the trip come closer.
