Spread the word!

In 1994, Sister Denisse Prichardo Rodriguez began her work for the children of the Dominican Republic, through the creation of Caminante. Situated in the tourist destination, Boca Chica, which has elevated levels of drug and sex trafficking among adolescents, she sought to provide an educational program. The children are not only taught the basics of a traditional education and the importance of physical and recreational activity, but how to protect themselves from the dangers prostitution and drug trafficking. Caminante also provides counseling services for the victims and families, while developing higher levels of self-esteem, by teaching them Christian values. Caminante offers a safe haven for those who might not have anywhere else to go.
I am so thankful to be a part this group so we can continue on with Sister Denisse and her journey in helping the people of the Dominican Republic, by spreading the word! By going down there I believe we can help make a difference in the lives of those we meet! I am most excited to see the effects that it will have on my life and the memories that I will take away from this experience!   -Lacey
